Comments:  "The central image of the piece is a woman cooking food and wearing an apron which reads "Mangán Tayón" which in Ilocano means "Let's Eat." fields of gold surround her and feature portraits and images of the artist's grandparents, faces, and as farmworkers working in the fields. They are depicted in sepia and skin color/flesh tones to indicate a feeling of the past in comparison to the central figure of the woman who is shown in more intense colors with warmer flesh tones to indicate the present. In the foreground are plates of food, spices, sauces, fruit and vegetables used in the preparation of the food which are all symbolic to the artist family community and culture." "The Mangan Tayon-Food for Thought print was designed to conceptualize the process of food consumption, the labor of agriculture and importance of cuisine preparation to the family.  The theme of food for the print was inspired by personal memory, identity and heritage.  The images in the print brought together many different environments relating to food: the labor involved in bringing food to our tables in the kitchen and also in the agricultural fields we often take for granted.  The work also represents the cultural and traditional significance that food represents to the artist's Pilipino culture and cross-cultural significance where food is a way to bring family together.  Each image was based on family pictures taken in the kitchen of the artist's mother cooking, from old family photo albums showing the diaspora of the artist's grandfather who was a part of the historical first wave of immigrant farm-workers from the Philipines and her grandmother who was able to come here as a contracted nurse and personal domestic care-giver for a family of Multinational Chevron Oil Corporate Officer.  This was rare due to the fact that this took place during a time when Asian Women were banned from immigrating to the US due to the Tydings McDuffy Law restricting them due to the threat of them marrying into the Anglo society.  In addition historical photos were integrated into the piece depicting the early farm workers photos taken at Agbayani Village showing the significance of Pilipinos to the UFW movement specifically the early grape strikes where Chicanos, Mexicans and Pilipinos came together to fight against the injustices of the grape farm workers researched at Visual Communications in Los Angeles.  There are culturally symbolic foods, spices, and produce on the table indicative of the Pilipino culture, showing how culture is passed on to future generations through the tradition of food preparation.  Some of most favorite memories are those of working in the fields with my cousins and preparing food in the kitchen sharing stories with my sisters and mom.
According to one's background and culture, food takes on different meanings.  Due to multiculturalism and globalization the people of the world are continually interacting with each other and as a result are constantly being introduced to a diversity of customs, traditions and ways of life.  With this work, I hope to reinforce a new sensitivity to a deeper understanding of one another based on tolerance and cross-cultural understanding.  Mangan Tayon is about the familiar act of eating we all take part in and functions as a metaphor for life exploring different perspectives existing in our society on the theme of food.  The work is about the experience of eating.  I believe the process of producing this work was personally more important than the product which supported people sharing their own oral histories and family stories provoking discussion with the viewers about their own personal experiences surrounding the memories of their family on the theme of "food".  Discussion was brought up in the process of creating this work deconstructing the issues of food and pertaining to how produce is grown, picked and distributed.  Revealing personal accounts of injustice to workers, details of the hard work involved and personal accounts from family members of the artist in terms of exposure to pesticides and harmful working conditions were all provoked due to the subject matter of this piece.
'My mother remembers the foreman telling my lolo, my grandpa, to mix the pesticides with his own two hands before spraying the fields with it.  My grandpa later died of cancer due to all the pesticides he had been exposed to while working in the fields.'
Their hard work often [went] unnoticed, unappreciated, and [was] often the subject of xenophobia and racism."—Cristina Miguel-Mullen.

Comments:  "A linear and cross-hatched version of Bottecelli's Venus (sans the half shell) holds paint brushes, their tips with the primary colors and gold, with her left arm. She puts her hand over her heart which has a tattoo with a small banner in Latin that is not entirely legible. Over her head is a full banner with the words on the tattoo- "Ars longa, vita brevis" (Art is long, life is short-Hippocrates). Yellow sunrays shine from behind her on a red background. In keeping with the theme of the Maestra's Atelier - nurturing.  I wanted to show the nurturing aspect of art, how it cultuvates [sic] and promotes a culture or civilization.  I've appropriated Botticellis image of Venis [sic] in part for its curva-linear quallities [sic] which I've often used in my work.  Largely though, I've used this image as to me it represents Art and how it caresses and protects a culture.  She is blue as the Greek god and the Hindu god, Vishnu were blue.  I wanted to show the enlightened quality that women possess that passes on culture through the ages.  Ancillary to the theme of nurturing are the banners over her tattoo and her head, a reassurance of the timelessness of art in the Latin phrase "Ars longa, vita brevis" (unless the Taliban rebels get it)."—Elizabeth Pérez.  Colors used: Deep Crimson, Pale Yellow, Light Blue (warm), Medium Blue (warm), Grey, Gold, and Purple.  From Maestras 2.

Comments:  "Hand lettered text at top of print within speed bubble reads "Si no hay lucha no hay victoria".  Image is distorted such that it appears to have been taken through a fish eye lens.  A woman stands on a side walk with her child in one arm at the center of the print.  In the other hand she holds a small iconic home.  In simple gray lettering "home" floats below it.  In back of her you can see a wall with a mural of stylized figures raising fists and identical men in suits painted over."  "To put it simply, this print was inspired by and created for the residents of the Figueroa Corridor area of Los Angeles as they struggle for their homes and dignity in the face of gentrification.  In conversations with some residents, it became clear that there was a great deal of frustration that they live in direct view of LA's financial district they felt they [were] very marginalized from any decision making processes and power.  Therefore I felt it very important to feature the residents, represented by the woman and her child at the center of the piece; further accentuated by the fish eye - like distortion of perspective.  The representations of financial power - the stamp-like men men in suites [sic] - are marginal and partially obscured.  Their clone-like appearance accentuates the other homogenizing effect of gentrification - the displacement of locally owned businesses in favor of corporate mono culture.
The statement "no hay lucha, no hay victoria" was pulled directly from translated conversations amongst residents and represents their passion and determination to keep their homos and take back their voices."—Weston Teruya.  Colors used:  light violet, warm orange (trans), mustard yellow (trans), gray violet, purple, and transparent white (trans).
