Two Tone 2
With her collection Two Tone, Lily Kenyi “wanted to experiment with the contrast of light and dark and the compositing of shape graphics.” The results are stunning images full of contrast punctuated by superimposed playful, colorful graphics. To achieve her aesthetic vision of a “play on atmospheric senses,” Kenyi used Facet’s Gradient Fill tool and Light & Color Balance tool. The artist’s greater body of work explores negative space and dreamlike states through her film-inspired stills. Two Tone furthers this exploration by capturing her subjects through a “soft and observing” lens, allowing the characters “to move freely in the scene.” Lily takes inspiration from the likes of contemporary filmmakers Steve McQueen, Mati Diop, and storyteller Michaela Coel.
