Expressionism or abstract expressionism is a manner of painting, drawing, sculpting, etc., in which forms derived from nature are distorted or exaggerated and colors are intensified for emotive or expressive purposes. It is a style of art that was developed in the 20th century, characterized chiefly by heavy, often black lines that suggest forms, sharply contrasting, often vivid colors, and subjective or symbolic treatment of thematic material. Often times, many people find expressionism not to their liking. They may not understand it.
The Tao is not understood by many nor are the people who follow its wisdom. Sometimes it is the most simple of things that is the most baffling. It is said that the enlightened possess understanding so profound they can not be understood by the masses.
