These bunny characters appear to be living it up having drinks out on the front porch - summertime classic fun - but there is also a feeling of isolation. In this surreal dreamlike painting, the houses have grown wings and are hovering over the landscape with only strings of lights holding them together. "A common theme in my paintings is one of relationships, connection but overcoming physical and emotional barriers," says Kat Silver.
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.
