Luke Haynes is an amazing American artist and quilter. He is educated at Cooper Union, School of Architecture and North Carolina, School of the Arts. Luke creates his own fabric world from small pieces of textile, put together and transformed in beautiful, contemporary art quilts.
Bible stories and religious symbols have inspired artists in all media through the ages. Many of the 19th century quilters knew few other stories than those they heard in church and at the family Bible reading. Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, and other famous biblical tales are the subjects of a number of quilts. Some have sober designs, others are lighthearted, in the manner of colourful illustrations for children’s Bible stories.
