ARTIST PROFILE: ELYSIA VANDENBUSSCHE STANDS OUT IN COMM[UNITY]
“This piece is a response to me being really comfortable in my own skin and letting go of fear and expectations,” says Vandenbussche. “I made that tile gold because the whole idea is to challenge how we view the word ‘rejected. We see rejection as something so negative, but I feel like there are a lot of valuable things on the outside.”
