My Choice #10 – A Woman’s Right To Choose

A blond woman in a floor legnth blue dress stands on golden strands that float on a variegated blue and rust background. She looks down pensively at a coat hanger dangling from one of the strands.

My Choice #10 – A Woman’s Right To Choose

Terry Braunstein and Victor Raphael – A Collaboration

This collaboration grew out of a professional relationship and mutual appreciation of one another’s work. They were motivated to create these artworks in response to the current political environment over the last few years.

Four series of limited edition ink jet prints will be featured here over the next several months: Climate Change, focusing on the world wide crisis caused by rising global temperatures; The Wall, which reflects on how walls are both barriers to human connection and inhibit those escaping persecution; My Choice, dealing with a woman’s right to choose; and Lessons to be Learned, looking at the challenges and wonder of childhood.

“My Choice #10” is the last artwork in a series of ten images. Today the rights of women to choose to end an unwanted pregnancy are under attack. The coat hanger, a simple household item, has come to symbolize illegal abortions that were common before Roe v. Wade.

Next week we will begin posting images from the series, Lessons To Be Learned, looking at the challenges and wonder of childhood.
