This research from the archives of Women artists Research and Exhibtions, draws light of how poignant and incisive works in ceramic, drawing and the written word testify to her main preoccupations: women’s issues and exploitation, discrimination, and the marginalization of certain layers of society by the more powerful. Her work in ceramics and writing consistently and overarchingly defied and denounced gender structures and questioned the status quo of machismo in Venezuela, along with socio-political problems, all with the boldness and biting sense of humor that came to define her. This article focuses mainly on her work in ceramics.
