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.

MRI (Mathematically Reconstructed Imaging)
I have ofen professed that fractals can recreate most imagery whether it be a classical painting, an abstract idea, or in this case, a medical iimage. The Mathematically Reconstructed Image, recreates an actual brain MRI with the addition of thought patterns and neural activity. The image comes as a celebration to great news I received a short time ago. Through a short series of medical emergencies recently, I was perscribed to have an MRI. One doctor told me I had a brian tumor which was growing out of control and I had to see one of the countries leading surgens for this type of tumor. Since this man is even more than a specialist, I had to wait an agonizing 8 weks thinking I had a growth in my brain that was out of control. Upon my visit I provided complete CAT scan and MRI info that I have had over the past 20 years, to which he came in the room, happy to tellme, there was absolutely nothing he can do for me, as the "tumor" that was such a concern, was actually a small abnormalty on the surface of my skull, which has always been there.
There certainly was a huge relief, and within days the series of flame fractals created with JWildfire below depicted the joy in my misdiagnosis, and correction. The painting is a composite of the three images below to create the coloring I desired for the image. Also included is the animated MRI I included as part of my fractal talk I did for my show at Washington and Lee. It depicts with the slices as a timeline, that "standard" 2d fractals (Mandelbrot and Julia) crept into my brain in the late 80's and my brain was inseminated with 3D fractals in and around 2010-2012. The ramifications are shown as the fractals grow within my cranium, effecting my outlook and work.
