This is part of series of small paintings featuring bizarre animals in whimsical situations. Animals that most people never cross paths with (unless at the zoo) remind us to believe that anything is possible and it's wonderful to be unique. Life is magical and limitless. We create the life we want by our thoughts, dreams and choices we make. "Group Hug" was inspired by my brother and our family origins being from Australia. He was in need of comfort during difficult time.
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.
