In this piece, a balloon heart-shaped face girl holds a flower pulling off petals. My inspiration came from my 6 year old daughter who drew these fabulous faces on balloons, but was heart-broken when they eventually popped - a good lesson in impermanence. Relationships can also be fleeting and temporary.
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.
