Jiyoun Lee-Lodge explores themes of identity in flux through her Waterman the Stranger series opening at the Alice Gallery.Waterman the Stranger opens May 10 and runs through July 5, with an artist reception May 17 from 6-9pm during Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. The exhibition is presented by the Utah Division of Arts & Museums at the Alice Gallery, located at the historic Glendinning Mansion at 617 East South Temple in Salt Lake City, which is free and open to the public Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.Lee-Lodge created this series as a reflection of her experience of settling to living in Utah after moving from New York. Her illustrations include the waterman figure which struggles to find a place within its environment, as it’s made of shifting water that repels, absorbs, and reflects.Lee-Lodge says of the series, “I started by asking – If I mimic what an ideal life looks like in a new place; will I blend in well?’ In this series, I deal with the sense of the alienation because of the pursuit of the self-defined ideal life. By learning activities such as hiking, gardening, and driving, I act to become part of where I am.”As a self-exiled Asian woman, mother, and social media addict, Lee-Lodge sees herself as a vulnerable stranger who critically looks for a definition of others to see herself clearly. Influenced by infographics, animations and hieroglyphs, she creates inner portraits, made of symbols of senses- such as sight, smell, sound, and emotions- that are frozen in time. Most of her artwork reflects her interest in people and how they process and change.
