About The Artwork

I wanted to do a piece of art on a transgender person because that speaks directly to genetics. During our sessions, we talked about her way of life and her unique perspective on gender identity. Mike sees herself as a beautiful woman with a penis. She realized at an early age that men found her fascinating and would pay to be with her. She now is in very high demand as an escort and has a marvelous lifestyle. She says what makes her truly unique are her female qualities combined with extraordinary male characteristics – such as wanting and loving sex. She boasts that she can always get an erection and always achieve an orgasm. Let me ask you, Do you know what a transgender person is? Do you know the difference between transgender and hermaphrodite? What would you do if you were on a date with a beautiful woman and you discovered she had a penis?

Ira Stein’s works confront issues that are difficult to talk about – sexual and physical abuse, social responsibility and what he feels is the dumbing down of society. As you will see, his works are bound together by his fascination with genetics and how it determines “all the shit you do.” His mantra, “Fuck Wisely” is a raw summation of his perspective on how society is evolving. Stein is a trained artist, a Vietnam veteran, former commercial airline pilot, and was a renown jeweler. With such an interesting and varied personal background, his works convey a well-rounded, multi-dimensional and inventive interpretation of the world surrounding him. His sculptures, mixed-media collages and figurative paintings all provide a glimpse into the psyche of an artist grasping with the notion of genetic essentialism viewed from the perspective of the troubled, vulnerable, and erotic female. Stein lives and works in Brentwood, California.
