Harmonious Emotions

Artwork By Johanna Marie Schimming


“The rhythmic marks may seem to be a code or recall Braille script, and I like to imagine that you can have the feeling to touch my paintings with your eyes.

For me painting involves the discovery of my own language as well as an exploration of myself. It is both an act of freedom and an acquisition of self-awareness.

I’m inspired by nature and I aim to render its vitality through my paintings, most of all by the movement of brushstrokes and marks, blending colors and fluidity.

I also explore the same elements as those of musical composition, like time, dynamics, rhythm, harmony, acceleration and silence, which are essential components of life, too.

To the contrary of many artists, my work is not driven by pain or suffering. Although such has not been absent from my life, in my work I choose to share my most harmonious emotions instead.

Through my work I search to express vitality, balance, serenity and profound joy. The pre-condition for my artistic work is therefore to overcome any kind of struggle, which demands a constant work on myself even before applying brush to canvas.”

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 jo@edgeofhumanity.com.
