Artist Hyoungseok Kim paints two human figures waiting on a store bench. He emphasizes the material scientific features of nature by expressing the flow of dots or particles. He firmly bases his concepts and ideas on materialism and natural sciences. Hyoungseok shares an excerpt of John Updike’s 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.

Hyoungseok Kim

DACULA, Georgia

Artist Hyoungseok Kim produces contemporary figurative work using pointillism as his preferred technique. “My artwork focuses on the story of communication and connection between all things in the universe,” says Hyoungseok. He enforces pointillist methods to emphasize the material aspect of his colorful compositions, representing the energetic behavior through a flow of vibrant dots and particles. His art gravitates toward representing people captured in everyday occurrences. Hyoungseok pursued a BFA and MFA degree in art, achieving his childhood dream of becoming an artist. Today, his home studio in Dacula, Georgia, doubles as a small wood workshop and painting space. He uses reference photos to recreate and transform beautiful renditions of the ordinary and mundane. Aside from his artistic endeavors, he enjoys crafting bespoke audio systems. Music always plays from his handmade speakers to accompany him as he paints.
