In "Not for the Faint Hearted," the main character is a bunny, frightened by its surroundings but being brave despite the emotion. Rabbits have been a theme and spirit animal for Kat for many years, reminding her to live life fearlessly and to the fullest. "When we envision the life we always wanted and then take the necessary steps to make it a reality, we must believe in ourselves and not let fear hold us back," she says.
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.
