Ways of Saying No addresses boundaries. Twenty different works feature a floral background, stereotypically feminine imagery. Text on each work present a range of “no’s” including messages like “no, thank you,” and “hard pass.” This series serves as a visual reminder, especially for those of us accustomed to accommodating others at the cost of ourselves, of the twisted considerations implicit for women in delivering a form of “no.”
