I hope my work is recognizable as being by a woman, though I certainly would never deliberately make it feminine in any way, in subject or treatment. But if I speak in a voice which is my own, it's bound to be the voice of a woman.
1978 statement, as quoted in The "New Woman" Revised : Painting and Gender Politics on Fourteenth Street (1992) by Ellen Wiley Todd, Ch. 7, p. 273
I didn't want to be a woman artist, I just wanted to be an artist.Isabel Bishop
