About The Artwork

Toni was born in Sicily and for the first 27 years of her life she describes how her father beat her EVERYDAY! She never mentioned her mother. One day she had enough of the abuse and ran away. She was 27 and thought everyone was beaten by their fathers until she arrived in America. She has a son but is not married. She struggles with the intense anger of realizing how much of her life was lost. She can’t seem to make any connection with men. She says, “I am very scared of men, they ruled my life for so long, I have no trust.” My portrait of Toni shows her falling thru the cracks not able to grasp on to something that will stop her fall until just before hitting rock bottom she says to herself….. “OH MAN UP!” As a result, she is able to get on with her life. Not happily, but proceeding day by day. Let me ask you, How long would you stay in an abusive relationship? Can you imagine inheriting her father's genes?

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.
