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.

About The Artist
About 4 years ago, rabbits became my power animal I started seeing and noticing them every where I went. Rabbits have a lot of different meanings and carry rich symbolism for many different cultures. To me in addition to their more common meanings of fertility, abundance and good fortune, they symbolized being fearless. They remind me to not allow my fears or anxiety to control me and keep me limited to safe areas. They beaconed me to push myself and push the limits of what I thought I was capable of.
