TOURETTE by mistertrece TOURETTE by mistertrece
Aerosol spray, kleenex and brush on canvas, 3 coffee, 5 cigarette. PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS SONG WATCHING THE IMAGE AND READING THE TEXT FOR TO CATCH THE FEELING OF THE PIECE [link]

This one is the best example of my rotten and raw i-have-no-technique-but-fuck-it style.

Tourette syndrome (also called Tourette's syndrome, Tourette's disorder, Gilles de la Tourette syndrome, GTS or, more commonly, simply Tourette's or TS) is an inherited neuropsychiatric disorder with onset in childhood, characterized by multiple physical (motor) tics and at least one vocal (phonic) tic. These tics characteristically wax and wane, can be suppressed temporarily, and are preceded by a premonitory urge. Tourette's is defined as part of a spectrum of tic disorders, which includes transient and chronic tics.
Tourette's was once considered a rare and bizarre syndrome, most often associated with the exclamation of obscene words or socially inappropriate and derogatory remarks (coprolalia), but this symptom is present in only a small minority of people with Tourette's.

Tourette's is no longer considered a rare condition, but it is not always correctly identified because most cases are mild and the severity of tics decreases for most children as they pass through adolescence. Between 0.4% and 3.8% of children ages 5 to 18 may have Tourette's, the prevalence of transient and chronic tics in school-age children is higher, with the more common tics of eye blinking, coughing, throat clearing, sniffing, and facial movements. Extreme Tourette's in adulthood is a rarity, and Tourette's does not adversely affect intelligence or life expectancy.

Genetic and environmental factors play a role in the etiology of Tourette's, but the exact causes are unknown. In most cases, medication is unnecessary. There is no effective treatment for every case of tics, but certain medications and therapies can help when their use is warranted. Education is an important part of any treatment plan, and explanation and reassurance alone are often sufficient treatment. Comorbid conditions (co-occurring diagnoses other than Tourette's) such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) are present in many patients seen in tertiary specialty clinics. These other conditions often cause more functional impairment to the individual than the tics that are the hallmark of Tourette's, hence it is important to correctly identify comorbid conditions and treat them.

The eponym was bestowed by Jean-Martin Charcot (1825–1893) on behalf of his resident, Georges Albert Édouard Brutus Gilles de la Tourette (1859–1904), a French physician and neurologist, who published an account of nine patients with Tourette's in 1885.

The first presentation of Tourette syndrome is thought to be in a 1489 book, Malleus maleficarum ("Witch's hammer") by Jakob Sprenger and Heinrich Kraemer, describing a priest whose tics were "believed to be related to possession by the devil". A French doctor, Jean Marc Gaspard Itard, reported the first case of Tourette syndrome in 1825, describing Marquise de Dampierre, an important woman of nobility in her time. Jean-Martin Charcot, an influential French physician, assigned his resident Georges Albert Édouard Brutus Gilles de la Tourette, a French physician and neurologist, to study patients at the Salpêtrière Hospital, with the goal of defining an illness distinct from hysteria and from chorea.

The exact cause of Tourette's is unknown, but it is well established that both genetic and environmental factors are involved. Genetic epidemiology studies have shown that the overwhelming majority of cases of Tourette's are inherited, although the exact mode of inheritance is not yet known and no gene has been identified. In other cases, tics are associated with disorders other than Tourette's, a phenomenon known as tourettism.

The criteria for this disorder is the presence of two or more distinct identities or personality states, each with its own way of perceiving, relating to, and thinking about the environment and the self; at least two of these personalities or identities recurrently take control of the individual's behavior; and an inability to recall important. Conversely, these individuals might refrain from any movement whatsoever for prolonged periods of time, as if in a trance.

Motor tics can range in complexity from eye blinking to sticking out the tongue to rapid jerking of the body and writhing. The vocal tics can be sounds such as coughing, barking, growling or repeating words and phrases over and over again. Perhaps the most well-known symptom of Tourette syndrome is coprolalia, the screaming of obscene and foul language. The concordance of the putative biological causes of schizophrenia and Tourette syndrome seem to imply some type of connection between the two disorders, and the phenomenon which they both imitate, i.e., demonic possession. It also lends credence to the belief that the brain is responsible for types of behavior which may initially seem remarkably beyond the realm of normal human behavior.

There is no cure for Tourette's and no medication that works universally for all individuals without significant adverse effects. Knowledge, education and understanding are uppermost in management plans for tic disorders.

Think about how many people died just because to have the bad luck of born with that curse, with the help of our worst enemies: fear of the unknow and ignorance.

I love how you represent the inner state to the outside. Like this one for example. You can see all of her feelings, you can feel her feelings. Her pain, torture, desperation. Everything.
These are one of most beautiful eyes you ever painted, I can tell you that because I am obsessed with your characters's eyes. And that lips, you can seee her misery and pain from that lips and they are scary and beautiful at the same time.
Her long neck is very pretty, pale and smooth. Perfection.
And her hair is so big and full of secrets. Love it.
Colours are beautiful although I must admit that I miss your red, haha, your red is perfect to me but you already know that.

Marvelous as always.

To be honest i´ve no technique but i created my own style and the way to do it, so is better ( for me) and i´m proud of it :D Specially with my tools, with the aerosol spray you can paint and make so different and really amazing things if you use the imagination.

Absolutely agree with you, not only attributes, some people must be destroyed too :D

Log Lady! I love her so :D And stringed instruments are just the prettiest, I read something once about stringed instruments being the ones that best reflect the struggle of making music. How something in the tension in them understands the struggle in creating. I really love how huge and epic and crashing it gets too as the drums really let loose! Good stuff :)

Beautiful work as always I enjoyed the music which is still playing at the moment. I know of several people who live in my town who suffer from TS and I have tics myself but they don't happen very often. Funny thing I have them most when I don't watch my diet and or consume too much caffeine. I'm hypersensitive to the stuff and one or two cups of coffee in the morning can make me tic all day and keep me up for days.

YOur work musical, written, and painting deals with things people want to know more about even if they may not admit it. It's good to get truths out there for all to see. It saves people a lot of suffering. As for your music. I really enjoy it but have yet to ask for copies of your work. I have to get around to that as soon as possible before I lose track of it. My mind isn't what it used to be these days.

Thank you for educating people about this often misunderstood condition. It is refreshing to see people not making fun of the people cursed with it. (I have had Tourettes since I was 8 years old.)
You've explained it very well! Trying to withhold the tics is like trying not to blink.

Really? Then this one is for you, because there´re tons of things like that thought our history, like the witch hunt, inquisition and all that. So i wanted to do it after to read about it, you know, people dont know about it, and like the schizophrenia, there´re a wrong idea of what is all about.

So i´m glad you like it and you readed the text, like all my art, is more than a creepy image, hope it dont bother you, is my way to show the concepts. People used to believe that the tourette was a sign of demonic possession, i can understand it, but now in the 2013 hope that things will change it. Thank you for that amazing comment!

People either fear or make fun of things or people they don't understand. Sad but true. We humans have a tendency to make life harder for one another than it needs to be. The picture, to me, illustrates some of the frustration and despair that can come with Tourettes and not being able to fit in with other kids or even control your own body all the time. I'm really glad I live in the 21st century instead of a time where I would have been considered possessed by demons.

No doubt, better dont know what people did to the " possessed" ones, real life is more creepy and brutal than fiction.

The cruelty and the fear is an easy way to hide our weakness, mental and spiritual, so i think there´s no "evolution" or "progress", we´ve just more distractions ( i mean, we can talk now living in different countries in real time without the need to make a phone call or we live in the space for months but we still having the same old fears and animal shit since we were cavemen).

This is very true--we still treat those who are different or those we don't understand in a pretty cruel fashion. We still have this hate and cruelty and horrible stuff people do to one another, and what for? Sometimes we humans don't seem so humane.

Is part of the human nature, you know, there´re Gandhis and there are Hitlers, but at the end of the day, if you really think, we´ve more knowledge and technology than ever but inside we´re the same old obsolete soul.
Anyway, i dont want to sound like a pesimist, there´re tons of good people who cares for the other and make awesome things.
Is cool to talk about that things here, sometimes i should act like a robot writting "THANK YOU" :D You rock.
