Cheryl Donegan shows off her artistic hand in all its forms at the Aspen Art Museum.

Artist Cheryl Donegan brings street culture and a DIY ethos to the Aspen Art Museum with GRLZ + VEILS, the first exhibit in a U.S. museum primarily devoted to her paintings. The exhibit—using painting and fashion as a lens to explore beauty, technology and expression of the self—features more than 40 abstract paintings plus a selection of garments from a new fashion line commissioned by the AAM.

Referencing Jasper Johns’s aesthetic—“Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it.”—Donegan sees the work as a way to layer references and tell a new story. “What I am interested in is clothing and the relationship of fabric to painting, printing to painting, color and pattern to painting, and the relationship of the body to painting,” she says. “This is a celebration and investigation of pattern and print.”
