In the twentieth and twenty -first century women had changed its role in a final and evolutionary
way.
Freedom and working conditions have made women starring the more important events of our
existence and have made conscience of itself as an active agent for society, framed in a single
moment of evolution for the human race.
The work of Piedad Tarazona (1974) has always addressed the issue of women,
sexuality and sensuality.
Her work began on flowers finding themselves as sexual organ of plants.
Color and movement, and have always been essential key of her Plastic explorations.
In her last work is an organ, the clitoris, which synthesizes all development of her concept.
The fact that its the only existing organ in the body which function its only to generate pleasure;
Also its being a relatively new discovery for society on these times
The clítoris, is clearly one of the strongest triggers of evidence of the power of femininity today.
The artist is considering everything that symbolizes this issues today,geometrically organizing
them in repetitions, she makes intelligent comments about herself and her femininity.
For example a grid that generates a lattice of white clitoris has for name referring to her years of
Catholic school in a claustral,,,, A colorfull cross of clitoris is called I Am A Woman,,,
The result is a dynamic visual experience, with solid and transgressive comments with an
intellectual background.
