    Dimiter Buyukliiski Mitchy (Bulgarian, born 1943)

    Interior I
    Oil on canvas
    Signed verso (inscribed Interior, I, D. Buyulliiski)
    52-1/2 x 38-3/4 inches (133.4 x 98.4 cm)

    Dimiter Buyulliiski Mitchy's work in the 1980's caused a sensation in the modern art community around the globe. His Composition series, in particular, with use of geometric forms and shapes, all in compositions and colors that are pleasing to the eye, are widely sought after today. Bulgarian-born and known worldwide for his work, this Interior I invokes an almost industrial theme in the box shape with the cylinders protruding, flanked by a larger shape at right, all positioned in front of a door-like opening. The complexity of the shapes includes a drape that appears to be in motion, which gives the entire work depth, a perspective in which Mitchy is a master. The texture of the paint in the detail is smooth, the lighter shades of the outlying area with thick brush strokes, adding to the depth of the painting.

    Paige Gallery, Dallas (1986)
