A creepy vintage toy rabbit comes to life in this fantasy dream painting. The rabbit appears in long, empty, ominous hallways. I have always been drawn to worn and spooky dolls at antique shops. I am intrigued with their story, who owned them, and how many generations they survived before being discarded. This oil painting is done on masonite panel, with a varnish finish, and will need a frame for display.

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.
