The Entrepeneur

by Mian Situ

Artist Mian Situ’s inspiration for The Entrepreneur, a portrait-within-a-portrait, came from a real photograph dating from the 1890s. Like many recent arrivals to the United States, the man against the backdrop would have wanted something from America to send to his family overseas and a photograph such as this was common.

Situ speculates that the flower in the Chinese man’s hand was most likely the photographer’s idea, as a Chinese man would not have thought to hold a flower in something as important as a photograph. However, in an attempt to learn and fit in with the customs of their new country, such a man (and his family) would be inclined to do what was asked of them or what they were told “should be done in America.” This man and his family have arrived in traditional Chinese dress for their visit to the “modern” American photo studio. The joining of old and new worlds, of east and west, is a central theme in Situ’s work.

Spilled Milk

by Morgan Weistling

Artist Morgan Weistling’s paintings invite the viewer to step into a story to which everyone can relate and so it is no surprise that his most popular paintings are his portraits of young children. His recent fine art limited edition print, Apple Girl, exudes the wonder of childhood grace. Weistling arranges the figures
of women and children as though they were abstract shapes, composing a scene that is both visually harmonious and narratively engaging.

In Spilled Milk, Weistling continues the journey into the wondrous inner life of children. In the quiet light of morning, a round-cheeked toddler stands in her own little corner, out of the way of busy adults. She tilts a pitcher of milk carefully, watching closely as every drop splashes onto the floor of the kitchen. The little milkmaid in the cranberrycolored dress has no motivation but curiosity and her actions stir within all of us a remembrance of our own innocence.
