In this surreal dreamscape painting I explore memories of high emotional and peak experience of being in love. The complex, exciting adventure of starting out on a new relationship which is all consuming in joy also extremely frightening.  The animal mask heads symbolize the barrier or persona we often put up to protect ourselves from pain or heartache.  This young couple is pictured here choosing the quiet beach to be alone rather then the loud, crowded fun carnival place seen in the background.

Getting to Know Kat

Kat Silver’s surrealist paintings 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. 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.
