Luke Haynes

Kansas City, MO

Luke Haynes experiments with the art of quilting, subverting this traditional form by integrating modern concepts which transform the comfortably familiar into the visually evocative. Haynes was born and raised across the American South, receiving formal training in art and architecture at Cooper Union in New York. A chance encounter with a box of fabric remnants sparked his imagination, leading to his first quilt which measured 7’x10’.
