In this surreal scene, two young women search to understand themselves as they sort through their mysterious pasts. "It is about family, more specifically sisters," says Kat. "Look closely to see secret stairways and tiny inner children locked up in prisons." Kat invites the viewer to take a journey into their imagination, rediscover their own inner child and reignite the fires of curiosity.
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.
