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.

The Ecstasy of St Teresa Explained by the Mathematical Reconstruction of Gustave Courbet's Origin of the World
Last spring I was fortunate enough to visit both Paris and Rome. While there were many things in each city to affect my mind and the minds of all artists, Bernini's works in Rome, and Gustave Courbet's "Origin of the World" at Musee' d' Orsay in Paris struck me as having a kinship. While many do not delve underneath the robes of Saints, surely the scene depicted in "The Origin of the World" has a deep connection to the Ecstacy of Teresa.
The very first time I saw "The Origin", I was deeply affected, like most I suppose. But I knew immediately it lay in my future to be depicted mathmatically and fractally. What I did not know is that the fractal would provide for the viewer, the waves, energy and intesity of orgasm.
The granduer of Bernini's depiction with its rays, columns and flowiing robes is recreated with the many nuances of flesh tomes derived from "The Ecstasy". In my painting,the waves extend through and beyond the body to depict the orgasm's reach and power, and in this case,its link to God.
"The Ecstasy of St. Teresa Explained by the Mathematical Reconstruction of Gustave Courbet's Origin of the World" is composed of two fractals.
One flame fractal which composes the body and out of body waves, contractions, and rivulets of the orgasm. The second fractal, a 3d Mandelbulb which was used to form the predominant pubic hair of the piece.
It gives me sublime pleasure to present to you something both completely different, and exactly the same when considering my catalog.
