Combining my love of bunnies and my enjoyment of vintage Victorian style was born a few portraits of animal headed old-timey paintings. This bunny lady peers outward as if waiting for someone's arrival, yearning to be somewhere else, although she wears proper clothes, she is surrounding by old barns and empty barren land. "Greener Pastures" was inspired by my own desire to relocate from where I currently live to 'bigger, better' places.
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.
