Ghost in the City - Police
About this artwork
Artist Hyoungseok Kim paints three police officers on the street in New York City with his signature style of pointillism. 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.
