About this artwork

Artist Hyoungseok Kim paints seven human figures on the beach using pointillism. The larger group poses in a selfie, with the ocean as their backdrop. He emphasizes the material and scientific features of nature by expressing the flow of dots or particles. Hyoungseok shares an excerpt of John UpdikeÕs Cosmic Gall as inspiration for his Ghost in the City series: Neutrinos, they are very small. They have no charge and have no mass. And do not interact at all. The earth is just a silly ball To them, through which they simply pass, Like dustmaids down a drafty hall Or photons through a sheet of glass.
