In Kat's body of work, frogs symbolize transformation and moving from one phase of life to another because of their metamorphic ability. In this surreal, dreamlike painting the frog and toad men travel on vintage bikes designed to cover long distances in record speed. One gentleman in the foreground has stopped, dismounted and is pausing to examine his path. Of this character, the artist muses, "Which road will he choose? Which direction is best for his to travel down? Too often in life we continue along for the ride on auto-pilot when we should pause."

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.
