This piece is a reaction to corporate America, people taking work and professional life too seriously. Rabbits are invading their space as a reminder to lighten up, live more for the present, not worry so much about climbing the corporate latter. Too many people place their career goals before family and friends, relationships suffer and eventually fall apart. The men on the sofa are faceless because they have lost sight of what is really important and are lost, empty shells. 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished 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.
