After the overturn of Roe vs Wade, a deep sadness overcame me as a realized that society has taken a step backwards in a women’s right to control her own body.
My painting reflects chained women, their heads down in sorrow. The three women represent the reproductive system. Which they long to control and set free.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Teresa Greve Wolf is a Chilean American Artist, who lives and works in the Midwest. Born and raised in Santiago, Chile, Teresa came to the United States four decades ago so that her husband could complete his advanced degree at the University of California, Berkeley. However, during her absence, Pinochet took power of her beloved Chile, and the volatile political climate forced them to stay longer, until they found their life was now in a new land. Teresa’s work reflects the flavor of her homeland culture while embracing the influences of the country she now calls home.
Teresa has earned awards at the Annual Social Justice and Art Exhibit in South Bend, Indiana, and the Art Show International I Los Angeles, received commissions from University of Oregon and has been selected to participate in art shows nationwide.
She is currently exhibiting in New York, Texas, and Indiana
