“Jill and I are delighted to make this commitment of the works in our collection which have been selected by the Museum’s curators,” said Sheldon Bonovitz. “With our gift, we are helping the Museum build recognition across a wide audience for the remarkable contributions of self-taught artists. We thank the Museum for recognizing the importance of self-taught artists within the broader field of contemporary art and hope that it will encourage other donors to help us further this important mission.”
“Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz have been pathfinders in this field,” said Timothy Rub, the Museum’s George D. Widener Director and CEO. “Their dedication to the work of self-taught artists and the exceptional vision they have brought to the development of their collection will now benefit the public and enable others to understand and appreciate this important, but little known aspect of modern and contemporary art.”
“Self-taught artists use a wide range of inventive working methods and often employ unconventional materials, including house paint, wood scraps, roofing tin, and shirt cardboard,” said Ann Percy, Curator of Drawings. “The individuality that characterizes the work and the artists’ methods of conceiving images independently of familiar styles, trends, or movements will appeal to a diverse audience interested in exploring new terrain in the art of the 20th and 21st centuries.”

“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 Daria 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.
