Surreal dreamscape of a house with human legs. My fantasy is that our home could travel on its own and we could live anywhere we wanted. In recent years we are always discussing and wondering where would be the best place to raise our children, what state, city, neighborhood? It's so hard to know especially in advance, but then once you move you are stuck with your choice at least for awhile. This is my fantasized solution of being able to roam around without all the nonsense of packing and switching houses.  
This piece is painted on cradled wood panel with finished black edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Kat

Although Kat Silver’s surrealist, Dali-esque landscapes often feature figures with missing limbs and exposed human hearts, they are not ominous. On the contrary, they project something whimsical and enticing within their dream-like plots. They expose the inner conflicts in Kat’s life, which are revealed through the imagery of her dreams and the symbolism encountered in her daily life. These conflicts are universal, demonstrating an obsession with time, choice, and fate. Which path should I choose? When should I pause and reconsider my direction? The figures are headless because they are not mentally present. Dragged down by the mundane aspects of everyday life that distract us, they are missing the magnificent view in front of them. The image of the rabbit has become an important symbol and signature in Kat’s work. For her, the rabbit represents power and taking control of one’s life. The sweet, confident groups of rabbits surround the lost, faceless characters in her paintings. We may not know where we are going, but we have guides along the way if we look for them.
