Dominique Cheminais

South African 1984- 

Dominique Cheminais is a novelist and painter from Cape Town, South Africa. In 2010, she held an exhibition of paintings titled For Esme with Love and Squalor at Blank Projects. Shortly afterwards she stopped painting entirely and dedicated herself to writing fiction. She is the author of a collection of short stories, Slim Foot on the Neck of a Dead Lion, and Immovable Movers, a book of abstract poetry. Her first novel, The Animal Breaking Through the Flesh, was published in 2015, followed by her second novel, Eighty-Four Thousand. Her most recent novel, Indefinite Holiday, will be published in the USA later this year through Pig Roast Publishing. Her novel Many Shallows has provided the inspiration for her new paintings.

Since re-entering the art world, she has shown her work at the FNB Joburg Art Fair with Stevenson; participated in a group show presented by Guy Simpson at Under Projects; and done a residency to launch her novel Many Shallows with A4 arts foundation, painting the walls and ceiling of the Goods space at Proto A4.
