I have been painting and making art since I was 7 yrs old. My uncle was an artist and taught me how to paint. I knew as a child I wanted to be an artist but somehow along the way I was convinced it was not a responsible choice of career so when I went to college I decided to be a
My paintings are surrealistic and dream realm based. I believe in magic and the unseen, forces at work behind the scene to make our paths line up and fulfill whatever purpose or destiny we came here for. During my time as an art therapist I learned to pick up on the hidden symbolism in the elements of artwork since art is non-verbal universal language of the soul. Each part of the artwork including the figures, objects, their placement and organization on the canvas has meaning, nothing is done by accident even when things are omitted without the creators intention. C.G. Jung has always played a large role in my art and interest in exploring symbols and meanings in dreams.
Also nature has always been a major source of inspiration for me. I believe we are all connected. All living beings and all creatures in the universe. I believe human beings have a lot we can learn from nature. If we watch & listen to the earth and all its creatures we can learn to more fully enjoy our life instead of being caught up in materialism, drama and stress.
About 6 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. Much of my work is whimsical, maybe even a little sarcastic because I think most people are too caught up in the mundane day to day life stuff to notice that life is passing them by. In my work I am attempting to capture people’s attention, to make them question their priorities, to take life a little less seriously, to not be so stressed and “sweating the small stuff”.
My paintings range in size and price, starting at around $100 and going up to $1500. for more information on purchasing please email or check out my online gallery for examples http://www.ugallery.com/kat-silver
