Lemurs represents family, play, and happiness. A large part of my life currently is my life with my husband and two children. The turtle in the painting represents time going slow and trying to cherish the moments which pass by way too quickly. The moonlight setting represents romance which is often hard to come by when you have two small children (finding alone time). 

This painting is on a cradled wood panel 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.
