The Many Facets Of Fear

Written by  Carioca Da Gema

Fear is an emotional natural response. It tells the self that adversity is on the way.  We fear things or events that can alter our survival or aspects of our lives.  From our perspective we cannot physically or emotionally overcome this uneasiness and our bodies kick in defense mode by feeling afraid.

Many times, we fear things that only exist in our minds, but nonetheless cause real pain.

We fear things we know we cannot control, such as the wrath of God, natural disasters, and death.

Losing a job, a home, or a loved one, are common fears.

But there are other fears that put our beliefs, morals, and ambitions at risk instead of threatening us physically or emotionally.

Art is an unparalleled conductor of history.  Through sculptures, paintings, music, and writings, art has participated in every step of human history.

Feared by the powerful elites and governments, art hangs around for a long time.  One can see their social struggles in art expression done decades before their birth. Poems, music, movies, and photographs are portable mediums, essential to carry on a message that can reach people regardless of their physical presence.  Mobile depictions of art make the oppressor afraid, very afraid.

Regardless of its borders one dictator is just like the next, and the search for freedom has a single target.

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator

Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life.  Most of it was acquired during my travels.  Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity.  But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell.  It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale.  The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!

The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow.  And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM”  the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.


The gallery is designed to connect the art seekers and collectors with artists directly. We offer artists a COMMISSION FREE / CONTRACT FREE online platform to sell their creations and engage with their clients using portfolio pages that are engaging with large images and a dramatic black background.

NO MIDDLEMAN is a boutique ART GALLERY; individuals browsing our archives and portfolio pages are relaxed, not pressured to sign up, agree with website terms, or maneuvering out of pop-up windows.

For details regarding participating in the NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY please contact Joelcy Kay the curator at
