"Simply Existing" holds a special place in PhenomenaLewis's heart, making it her favorite within this series. It was a labor of love, requiring an extended period of her creative dedication and effort.
This self-portrait resonates so deeply with her because it encapsulates her daily sentiments. The overarching desire to simply exist in a state of tranquility and freedom from various burdens is a sentiment that she carries with her each day. Her aspiration is to lead a life that is worry-free, stress-free, anxiety-free, and free from the shackles of debt, prejudice, discrimination, and other societal challenges that she faces.
The yearning for a life where she can exist without the weight of these issues is a universal longing, but it carries added significance in the context of her identity as a Black woman. The struggles and disparities that she and others like her face can be overwhelming, making the quest for simple existence an aspiration that resonates deeply with many.
"Simply Existing" stands as a powerful visual testament to these desires, inviting viewers to contemplate the universal longing for a life unburdened by external challenges, where the simple act of existing is a privilege and a source of peace.
