Artwork By Laara Cassells
“These images are from my “becoming” series which features 13-year-old girls. This is a fascinating age as it marks that important transitional period from childhood to adolescence. While my charming models have invariably shared a self-confident persona with me, I recognize that they are also volatile and unpredictable. They can be mature, affectionate and delightful, but also self-centred, moody, surly and backtalking. As this is a liminal stage when the individual is “neither here nor there; they are betwixt and between” (Victor Turner) I will be including portraits where the model shows a pensive, thoughtful moment, or is being moody as well as images of the girls being competent and powerful. Being a teenager has never been easy and I wish to portray some of the inconsistencies I have noted as these young women deal with the challenge of feeling invincible and invisible at the same time.”

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.
