New York, NY – July 13, 2011 – Gallery at New World Stages, located at 343 West 49th Street in 
New York City, announces the opening of Flashback: Street Scenes by Daria Deshuk The Larry Rivers 
Years, an exhibition of 24 original oil paintings by Daria Deshuk.  The show will be on view from July 11 
through September 5, 2011, with an Opening Reception on August 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. 

“This series is about creating snapshots of life, my chosen imagery takes that reality and depth of the 
viewer to a level of universal and subjective intimacy. With paint and brush I strive to capture the 
essence and atmosphere of the ordinary and mindless vignettes of daily life, said Deshuk. "The work 
explores Intensity, Interaction, Passion and Mediation, the individual references the collective and art is 
created. The artist as voyeur steals selectively from the Public environment of streets, parks, images that 
define a New York City American experience.  Far beyond the standardized interpretation of reality 
provided by photography, Painting allows me to capture the essence of human experience condensed 
into the stolen moment, my choices as an artist extend reality by leading the eye in the re-orchestration 
of light space and the pure beauty of paint itself," concluded Deshuk.  
 
Daria Deshuk studied Art at Parson's School of Design she received her BFA in Painting in 1978. Daria 
found herself part of the exciting art scene in the early eighties living in the East Village, receiving a MFA 
in Painting from Hunter College. She was a member of P.S.122 Artist Space, working and exhibiting for 
10 years. Daria met the artist Larry Rivers and at the age of 22, began a companionship of 15 years. 
Their son Sam Deshuk Rivers was born in 1985.  Daria now resides in Bridgehampton, NY full-time, with 
her Partner David Kushnir.
