Beauty and the beast; Dissociative identity disorder: surreal art-print, poster, book, desktop-wallpaper NeoSurrealismArt.com
The 19th and the 20th centuries were marked with an ongoing public interest in everything unknown and unexplored; mediums, spiritualists, parapsychologists, and hypnotists started to emerge on a professional scene which had earlier belonged to medical specialists only. During their sessions, a lot of patients were labelled with a multiple personality disorder or a split personality, as they obviously demonstrated a strong presence of a second personality or a co-existing mind. The reason behind this long-term mental disorder (DID, dissociative identity disorder, as in psychiatry), apart from a possible connection with an emotionally disturbing experiences from the past, is still to be ascertained.
The term “split personality” is commonly used in everyday language to indicate a contradictory and dramatically alternating “Jekyll and Hyde” type of behaviour. But there are still people who doubt the very existence of this illness, thinking that the person under question is merely fooling around or performing. DID is sometimes mistakenly confused with schizophrenia which is a psychiatric mental disorder that normally manifests in hallucinations, paranoid delusions, and severe social and occupational dysfunction. It doesn’t happen with multiple personality disorder patients, they have another problem to worry about, i.e. at least two alter egos or alters who coexist on one territory and have no idea about each other. Their alternating awakening is associated with a complete memory loss.
The clinical research has shown that multiple personality patients who had reintegrated the alters, have a better chance at recovery than patients who had been resisting to do so. Judging from the fact that it is almost impossible to distinguish beauty from the beast in this image, this pretty lady is definitely on the mend.

This is such a feast for the eyes.. So many interesting things for the eyes to rove over.. And the tinge of color breathes life into the whole piece.. Just didn't like the face of the woman in the catwoman mask... too stiff looking..

The works are extraordinary beautiful. Even more interesting is the psychological meanings behind the image. I want to know more by the figure of George Grie. I've had bipolar disorder (bipolar disorder) for years.

Karya-karya yang luarbiasa Indah. Yang lebih menarik ada makna-makna psikologis di balik gambarnya. Saya ingin kenal lebih jauh dengan sosok George Grie. Saya pernah mengalami gangguan bipolar (bipolar disorder) selama bertahun-tahun.

Are you available for producing a single piece of artwork for a large US communications company's advertising campaign? I would be very interested in discussing this with you or your agent. You can be confident that this is completely legitimate inquiry.
