"Attuned" _
Lewis Derogene (PhenomenaLewis) _
Self-Portrait Photograph | 2020 _
20in x 21in _
Limited Edition of 5 AP _

In this photograph, PhenomenaLewis, a dark-skinned Black woman, is depicted in black and white. She is dressed in a white robe, which also serves as a turban, set against a backdrop of a purple cloudy sky with a circular hoop framing her. Capturing this self-portrait was a straightforward process for PhenomenaLewis, driven by the desire to evoke the same serenity found in a previous self-portrait photograph called "Empyrean."
To maintain a consistent atmosphere of tranquility, she retained similar color palettes. Additionally, she drew inspiration from another self-portrait photograph called "Evolved," in which she had wrapped herself entirely in a blanket. This time, she recreated a similar composition using a bedsheet.
As time passed, PhenomenaLewis realized that her recurrent use of blankets, bedsheets, pillows, and fabrics like satin and velvet was rooted in the pursuit of comfort. These elements not only provided a sense of physical comfort but also allowed her to access a mental space of softness and serenity.
