In her signature surrealist scenarios of animals performing everyday activities, "Sunbathing Bunnies" takes Kat's characters to a summer day at the pool. The artist shares that rabbits have become her spirit animal and remind her to be fearless in life. Of the swimming pool scene, she explains, "Some of my fondest memories are from time spent at swimming pools in the summer, as I am sure it is for many people. I grew up loving the water and even swam competitively from middle school all the way up through college. It was thrilling to be on the diving board or starting blocks right before a race."
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.
