ART - Expression

Assuming that the artist does not relieve his oppressed state of mind through creating,what connection has this with the exact words or score or brushstrokes that he puts on paper or canvas?
Feelings are one thing, words and visual shapes and tones are quite another.It is these latter that constitutes the art medium and in it that works of art are created.
There is doubtless,a casual connection between the feelings of the artist and the words he writes in his poem,but the expression theory of creation talks only about artists feelings,while creation occurs within the art mediums themselves,and to speak only of the forms is not to tell anything about the work of art.
The artist doesn't know what he is going to express he has expressed it.He does not know the end in the beginning,he cannot state until his work is finished what the completed product will be like- if he could, he would not have to undergo the "divine agonies" of creation in order to produce it.Artists are the people who wear their soul on their face.
