All the things she said, this is not enough. Against the backdrop of paintings by LaTonia Allen, Ranee Henderson, Laurel Richardson, and Paige Twyman, the 2002 hit All The Things She Said by pop-duo t.A.T.u., takes on new meaning. A rallying cry in a world that consistently tells women they are not enough, that they must change - their looks, their personality, their preferences, their taste - to fit into a set of expectations that have nothing to do with the individual. In a world where only 30% of artists represented by commercial galleries in the United States are women, to be a woman painter is itself a radical and risky proposition and one that these artists take up with gusto and determination.
