This series of paintings is based on love.and the feelings it elicits. The electro chemical reactions to love in the brain, and the desire it causes.
We are here to evolve, learn, accomplish, inspire, and create. There are combinations of these elements that give us drive and will. No matter where we come from, what our status is, intellectual prowess, or position in life, I feel there is one more thing beyond the elements that makes most of us the same. Love. Beyond all the distractions and glamour, pain, and suffering, I feel we all want to love and be loved. I'll close this book with the wish that you have love in your life and heart and that it attracts the love you deserve.
"Love is the Answer" is the first of the series and depicts the love of a couple as they affectionately lean towards echother.They are formed simply by the archway the defines day from night. A golden film that seperates the dark from the light. Their love is universal and exists in the complexity that is the world around us. Each thermal whisp in the space time of the scene is executed to visulaize the wondrous complexity of even the most simple landscape. Know that the same complex fluidity flows within and throughout the space between your molecules, with each complex pocket formed dby the movement of temperature and corpuscular movement. The world around us is a wondrous place, but just behind the verneer of our senses, lies a world beyond the dreams of most.
Love is the Answer Oil on Canvas 12"x9" Louis Markoya - 2020
Love is the Answer is based on the tiny painting to the left, which has been brought to visualization utilizing the very latest in Neural software and deep dreams.
That painting which I did long ago was based on a combination of two Dali works shown below, Couple with Heads full of Clouds and Architectural Reminiscence of Millets Angelus.

IntraCranial Landscape with Self Portrait and Complex Neural Architecture
Medical Illustrations of Neurons and Synapse Firing
For most artists, whenever they create a painting they are giving the viewer insight into their world and how they see the subject painted. For the first time in history, I bring the viewer not only into the world as I see it, but physically into my own cranium and brain. In the "Intracranial Landscape", a landscape scene found in my occipital lobe is captured as if there were a security camera installed inside the rear of my skull. I have always felt that an individual lives inside their head, as opposed to living in a state, country, or street address. This is now proven by this snapshot which catches me wandering on a beach in the vision center of my grey matter, while my neural network is captured in a grand architectural formation only Gaudi can rival. The fact is that these remarkable structures are not only soft, but dynamically change with the advent of different thoughts or ideas, morphing in nanoseconds through fractal formations at the speed of light. While the synapse is thought to be an electro chemical phenomenon, relationships between neurons not understood, allow massive amounts of them (neurons) to act together to not only allow a human to function and think, but in doing so form magnificent electrical, chemical, and light emitting structures pictured here for the very first time. The massive fractal archway imaged here is dynamically formed and forever changing. Capturing stills of nerual formation at shutterspeeds well beyond most modern cameras. Below are more stills taken during different thoughts, and different times over just a period of a few minutes. The painting is testimony to the marvel that is your brain, and my attempt to divulge some of its secrets, while simultaniously, provoking new and similar patterns in the viewers own cranium.
While I executed this painting during the summer months, I can not explain why I am wearing my winter coat and hat in my cranium, and will consider explanations as to why in more detail in the future.
