This is part of a series of paintings I did about memories, hopes, fears of childhood.  Life is full of challenges and especially as we move from one stage of life to another, from childhood for example into teen years or from teenager to adult.  We are often faced with unexpected dangers or obstacles, that if we are caught off guard change the course of our life forever.  Sharks in the water represent such things that sneak up on us when we are blissfully oblivious.

Getting to Know Kat

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.
