A popular expressionist artist is Victoria Horkan. Her pieces, such as Centrifuge, are explosions of colour and energy. The textured effect of her originals (made using acrylic oil and mixed media) is displayed in her prints, giving her work a certain force that escapes from the canvas into the real world.
Expressionism is a modern art movement which began in the early 20th century. Expressionism in art is the creation of artwork in a solely subjective manner; pieces are radically distorted for emotional effect to represent evolving states of mind, moods and ideas rather than any objective reality.
