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.

Temple of Infinite Possibility (Portrait of Amber)
St Peters Basilica, Temple of Infinite Possibility
The Pantheon, Temple of Infinite Possibility
While my latest paintiing, "Temple of Infinite Possibility" is very different from all my previous work, I can not help but be amused and somewhat amazed at all that it has in common with thse same works. Offering another step in the continuity and evolution of my own work, it is a logical and rational next step painting.
Here we find the cranium representing the Temple of Infinite Possibility, a logical progression to the thought I had two years ago, that "Only thought can rival nature". This statement is perhaps the most profound that has come to this set of electrical impulses and neural networks. Nature has been over and over shown to be magnificent and unparralleled in its diversity, which is true, until you consider that your own ability to think and the range of thought you are capible of surpasses nature.
While the thought of the cranium as temple applies to each and every one of us, I have chosen to paint the portrait of my daughter Amber, in this piece, for not only is she beautiful, but I love her very much.
During the renaissance and beyond, master architechs and artists have designed the amazing and sometimes overwhelming cupolas and interiors of the great cathedrals of the world, and especially Rome. While the general line of thought is that these cathedrals and ceilings were designed to depict the glory of god, it can not be denied that these same edifice's of wonder, are testements to the capabilities of man, and the mind. When I constucted the pearlescent cranium , it was in the same spirit that these great cathedrals were constructed. Those great intereior cupolas are the very inside or our skulls. How can such a though not but connotate that we are capable of virtually anything, as has been proved by history, over and over. The opulence of gilted gold and renaissace painting here is replaced by the architecture of 3D fractals. The complexity of which, while admirably contested by the likes of Bernini, Raphael and the like, can not be matched simply due to the magic of modem mathematics (Mathemysticism)
It is my most fervent hope, dear reader, that this painting, as well as the body of my work, inspire you to look deeper, think more, and grow your own neural network. Leading to new and different thought, expanding your own world and views. Thank you for reading this far.
