"Breaking Through" an example of Squiggleism by creator Stefan Duncan. Several differences of Squiggleism compared to Impressionism are the strokes are of unblended colors. Instead of the typical impressionistic short dash, the strokes have a twist or curve and are applied in a staggered, flowing movement. The overall work can be seen like a symphonic overture with each stroke like a music note. The colors and lengths determine the tones and rhythms.
