In the early 90s, while living in the mid-west, Greg Domres was given an assortment of chenille stems (also known as pipe cleaners). Intrigued by their texture and color, the self-taught artist instinctively began weaving and layering them into unique interpretations, creating winsome of still lifes, landscapes and sculptures. Two decades later, dividing his time between Manhattan and Litchfield, CT, he continues to refine this outsider art form he refers to as stemming. His work, informed by the Fauvist movement and artists like Picasso and Warhol, is uniquely his, often being described as both naïve and sophisticated.
