Our Featured Speaker
LA's own Edgy, Contemporary Quilter
You've seen his work at the Craft and Folk Art Museum's "Man-Made" show last year as well as in the Los Angeles Times, in art and fiber related magazines and in quilt exhibits all around the country and now he is bringing his textile art to us!
Subverting the traditional quilting form by integrating modern concepts, Luke's art transforms the comfortably familiar into the visually evocative. Luke Haynes was born and raised across the American South. 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 Lukes' 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, Luke 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.
Luke will also be teaching his workshop "Log Condo" for us on Friday, February 5th. The workshop is currently sold out, but you can contact Programs@westsidequilterslosangeles.org to be added to the waiting list.
