Lewis Derogene (PhenomenaLewis) _
Self-Portrait Photograph | 2020 _
32in x 40in _
Limited Edition of 7 AP _

In this captivating self-portrait titled "Evolved," we find PhenomenaLewis, a dark-skinned Black woman with beautifully exaggerated dark skin, enveloped in the comforting embrace of a teal blanket. With hoop earrings adorning her, she gazes directly at the camera, revealing three-quarters of her face. This striking self-portrait marked a pivotal moment in PhenomenaLewis's artistic journey, symbolizing the commencement of a new era in her art career.
"Evolved" was a significant departure from her previous works, as it was her first foray into the realm of color photography. It signified a profound shift in her artistic and emotional perspective. In her earlier creations, her art was often intended to provoke discomfort and challenge conventional norms. However, with "Evolved," her intention shifted towards evoking feelings of comfort and softness, not only in her audience but also within herself.
This marked a transformative era of healing in both her personal life and her art. "Evolved" served as the catalyst for this profound change, ushering in a new chapter that celebrated vibrancy and emotional well-being, symbolizing the start of a healing journey that permeated her art and self alike.
