Luke Haynes

Luke Haynes expresses modern themes and portraits through quilts. His use of well known quilting patterns and techniques and bold imagery give his work impact. Using a lot of reclaimed clothing for his fabric adds interest and his often subtle coloured backgrounds ensure maximum impact of the subject. He loves working with a tactile medium. 

He says of himself: 

‘I’m a 40 year old architect turned quilter with a love for creating tactile objects that have a history of utility and a future of self-preservation. I research comfort by creating comfort objects. I create environments through a filter of support, efficiency, and accessibility. I make fine art with a process that historically has only been identified with Grandmas and crafts, and I want to have a conversation about it.’
