Inspired by fairy-tail dreams and whimsical stories of pumpkin patches and magical tales comes an original painting of my favorite season, the fall! In this scene twin sister bunnies stand alone in a pumpkin patch but yet they are not alone–if you look closely you will see many tiny white mice scattered among the pumpkins. "Strength in Numbers" is about gender roles and how women continue to struggle for equality. If we come together we find strength in our numbers and magic happens!
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.
