Flying houses are a fantasy of mine, the idea of being able to relocate your home effortlessly and without all the drama and stress of what moving in real life takes. I often daydream about what it might be like to live in one place or another. If our house could fly we could flutter over to Ireland for example and enjoy the rolling meadows for awhile and when we get tired of seeing green hills try out a beachside scene. Flying is the ultimate of freedom and adventure!

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.
