I am wondering if there is such a thing as "random" when it comes to expressionism.

Your brain decides things even before you've realized it. For example, if you pick something up, a fraction of a second before you made that conscious decision to do so your brain had already signaled for it.

Therefore, is all line work (the process & style that creates a line) just built up emotions and decided subconsciously rather than the act of doing something for no real reason, rendering it "random"?

  • What is 'line work?' – DJohnson Sep 23 '18 at 14:37
  • Line work is whatever technique you use to create a line. line work could be a pencil sketch, shading, squiggly lines, chaotic lines, geometry, streaks, thick and thin, etc. – Patrick Tudor Sep 23 '18 at 15:16
  • You clearly have something in mind. Could you make this question more specific? – Mark Andrews Sep 23 '18 at 16:58
