This painting is the final in a series I created exploring dreams, memories, childhood imagination and curiosity. Children have a limitless resource of imaginative worlds and as we grow up and "get mature" we lose our ability to believe that life is magical and limitless. Snails are carrying these children on a ride across the land of dreams and sleep. Fireflies dance and play in the starlight. Magic is all around us, we just have to slow down to see it.

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.
