Luke Haynes is a designer working with fabric to create objects and exhibitions. His work seeks to change the way viewers understand utility based objects. His work hangs in collections, homes and museums across the United States and internationally. He is up-and-coming while continuing to innovate and design new ways to create art. His work is currently in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum, the American Folk art Museum, Newark Museum and the Headquarters of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation just to name a few. He shows across the country and internationally. He currently lives in Los Angles California. His works can be classified as quilts since they follow the traditional methods of construction, but they are much more. His concepts and images pull from the annals of historical painting and sculpture but are also allowed to pull from craft and the domestic since the medium is atypical, this allows for pieces that have multi layers of visual as well as conceptual intrigue.
The public was invited to meet the artists at an Opening Reception on Saturday, June 14th. There was no charge for this event.
