Brooklyn artist Suzy Taekyung Kim was one of two artists chosen from a field of more than 400 to have her work featured in the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.

Recently, Kim toured the construction site where her large-scale painting for the lobby will be placed.

The painting will be approximately 12 feet high by 16 feet wide and will consist of eight customized wood panels that create one large surface. Kim uses color to create weaved images of foliage and explosions, and accumulates multiple layers of diluted paint, stains, acrylic paint, mica and gold leaf.
