This was part of a series I created exploring dreams and memories of strong emotion.  This scene captures a young couple in love frolicking in a moonlit field.  The large bear head masks represent the personas or false selves we often hid behind in order to protect our true self.  Love and relationships can be magical and amazing but can also be very scary, to allow oneself to be completely vulnerable.

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.
