"I Rise" _
Lewis Derogene (PhenomenaLewis) _
Self-Portrait Photograph | 2020 _
16.5in x 20in _
Limited Edition of 5 AP _

When PhenomenaLewis created this self-portrait, her aim was to infuse the artwork with a vibrant array of colors. Her intent was to utilize the creative process as a means to transcend the mental battles she was grappling with during that period. Although she preferred not to divulge the specific details of those inner struggles, the self-portrait stood as a representation of the idea that these challenges need not be a permanent fixture in one's life.
To set the stage for this creative endeavor, PhenomenaLewis took a blanket and pinned it to the wall, effectively transforming it into a dynamic and visually engaging background. During post-production editing, she adopted a two-pronged approach to amplify the image's visual impact. Firstly, she adjusted the tones of her skin, transitioning it to a striking black and white palette while introducing a subtle touch of darkness to achieve a captivating contrast. Concurrently, she superimposed a textured shot, reminiscent of a wall's surface, onto the blanket's background. This final touch was aimed at enhancing the depth and complexity of the composition, symbolizing the transformative journey of transcending life's challenges through the medium of art.
