Product Description

The design for the limited edition piece was a collaboration with my friend Emma O’Brien. The starting point was a news broadcast that I saw on TV interviewing an Irish woman who had an abortion. Her profile was backlit so her face wasn’t visible, all you could see was her silhouette, like the technique they use to hide criminals’ identity, which technically she is under Irish laws. The image was so strong and reminiscent of those old Victorian silhouettes, which we used in the final print as a reminder that no matter how many people try to downplay Repeal the Eighth as a new and ‘trendy’ issue, abortion is not a new concern for women. It felt necessary to make that connection to women in the past, that they shouldn’t be forgotten, and that there should be no more faceless women.
