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.

Neural Suspension of Consciousness, the Dream
Neural Suspension of Consciousness, The Dream depicts a figure, covered in the complexity of life imaged by dragon flame fractals. that is both terrified in a freefall, and in ecstasy at the same time. The figure is suspended in the Neural network, which is also producing the dream. Suspended about the figure and neural network are molecules of chemicals produced in the brain such as oxytocin. The entire scene occurs within the walls of the cranium. While Dali and Freud worked on what the dream was, I have advanced the process to depict the functions that produce the state.
Here I am introducing the viewer into a world not normally envsioned or imagined, to allow them to identify with the miracle and complexity of your own brain, thought process, and in this case The Dream. Thhe body of the dreamer is covered in an intese network o of logarythmic spirals and fluid dispersion known in the fractal world as a flame dragon. It describes the complexity of our own physiology, and how it relates to the complexity of our own brain and neural system.
