I choose to represent Jesus the way I see him. Jesus (Jewsus) was Jewish. He was a rabbi. He died horribly like so many Jews have in history. To express the agelessness of religious persecution, the materials used represent the contemporary plight against the patina of ancient wounds. The aluminum cross with metal bolts are crucifying a man because of his beliefs. The yellow star is my way of updating the portrait of a man who died because he was a Jew.

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.
