The most important aspect for art in connecting with an audience is expression. Not just what expression does it have, but perhaps even more importantly: how much.

This is not as obvious as it sounds. Many artists (in the widest possible sense) get so wrapped up in the technique, and in their own relationship with the work, that they forget about the audience. And as a consequence, many many works of art have barely any expression at all.

Eolake or others, How about a couple of examples of each?

Ooh, that's a tough one. If you really look for it, a work of art basically always has *some* expression. Especially if it's strong enough to have been published.
Further, nothing is more subjective than art.
