University of Kansas Medical Center / by Karen Matheis

I am working with members of the team who are creating the new neurology building for the University of Kansas Medical Center.  I am in the middle of creating nine paintings that will go in the lobby of this huge complex.  The process of creation is very interesting.  The architects build the structure of the building, but a design team works on the details of the interior.  Components include fabrics of chairs and colors of walls. The end goal for these designers is to create an atmosphere that is an inviting space for the people who inhabit the area.
