When it comes to rejection, there are two ways of dealing with it: one way is to continue looking for validation by changing yourself according to some desirable model; the other way requires digging deeper in search for oneself regardless of a supposed ideal. In her work, Arlene Rush draws from her personal experiences, offering the viewer her own approach to self-preservation in the face of rejection. How one can start believing in oneself and keep moving forward, regardless of non-recognition and misperception? In this interview, Arlene Rush talks to Artdependence Magazine about overcoming the negative.
