Luke Achterberg – Calibration: 2015 Weinberg Competition Winner

Painted Steel

The artist states that this piece explores the relationships between fine art and subcultures in America.  He has worked in the world of art and he has worked as a welder and he looks at the way that a worker such as a welder can overcome the standardization of mass production.  “I continually play with balance, both physical and aesthetic creating a visual smoothness or sleekness, what I would call ‘Super Sleek’”.

Winner of the 2015 Louis Weinberg Sculpture Competition.
