"Long Awaited Brew" was my very first bunny painting, which I did back in 2012. That was when I first started noticing wild rabbits following me around near my home, at work (in an urban setting), and pretty much everywhere I went. I decided that they must be trying to tell me something. I looked up the meaning for rabbits as a spirit animal and found that they represent facing your fears, not holding back and going after your dreams, which was exactly what I needed to hear at the time. This piece combines acrylic painting with some collaged images of rabbits. The child dressed up as a rabbit leads the way for the rest of the rabbits to enter the line to finally get what they have all been longing for, a coffee, of course. For me coffee is one of my favorite indulgences of life. 

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes 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.
