LUKE Haynes Quiltllaborations Exhibit

Dec 5, 2016, 9:30:53 AM / by AccuQuilt

We are honored to welcome the LUKE Haynes Quiltllaborations Exhibit to the AccuQuilt Gallery. Quiltllaborations is a series of collaborative projects that LUKE Haynes worked on with other artists and quilters. Haynes did most of the piecing, while artists like Liz Tran and Carlos Jesus Dominguez provided the painting elements on a couple of quilts. Quilters Libs Elliott and Heidi Parkes also worked with Haynes on piecing one quilt each.

Subverting the traditional quilting form by integrating modern concepts, Haynes' art transforms the comfortably familiar into the visually evocative. With a formal training in art and architecture at Cooper Union, New York, Haynes continues to experiment with quilting art while exploring art and architecture across the globe.

A chance encounter with a box of fabric remnants sparked Haynes' imagination. His first quilt, measuring 7′ x 10′, led him through years of experimentation and improvements over the years that he has been quilting. Further honing his style, Haynes developed a system to piece manageable parts into a larger whole, applying a modern design sense to a familiar process. He uses reclaimed materials from the communities he works with in his projects to speak with the textile language of the area.
