Mavis Tauzeni

Mavis Tauzeni is a subtle talent. Her work in print and mixed media moves one to mediation and reflection of one’s inner self in the same way as Tauzeni herself reflects on her inner world. Speaking unapologetically from a woman’s perspective, she constantly explores the mutable relationship between a woman, her potential and her actual in daily life and through the life cycle. “I feel that women in particular relate the physical with the spiritual and emotional in a uniquely powerful way, being the givers of life and the nurtures of others. The physical strength is integral to the spiritual importance.” With quiet confidence and gentle poetry, Tauzeni asserts the right of the new generation of women in Zimbabwe to claim a place in their society on their own terms.
