"Expansive Beauty" explores the nature of beauty, complexity of life, and the limited abilities of human understanding in experiencing these large spiritual expansive elements of life. The windows in this painting represent one's choice to live in this dimension - this physical plane. "If we were to peer into or through another's window we would see a whole different reality," says Kat Silver. "Beauty is relative, subjective, yet universal and unmistakable. I believe we create our own realities, we are the creators."
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.
