the problem with being trans is cis people. The problem with being queer is straight people. The problem with being disabled is abled people. The problem with being Black is white people. In other words, prejudice.

Portrait of Karl Sakovsek 1910 by Egon Shiele

Today the remarkable Neue Gallery show of 125 drawings by Egon Shiele on 5th Avenue at 86th Street.  As I wheeled myself around, the art project I plan to undertake in the new year came into focus.  I want to draw/paint a Shiele a day for a period of time and write about what it is like for a lesbian feminist to artistically engage with this gifted artist/pedophile.
