“Was I Just Another One” by sculptor Hector M. Ortega shows the artist taking a new creative direction. Ortega explains the new direction – “Was I just Another One” is a deeply introspective sculpture. After the last few monumental pieces I began to question my “Constrained Geometrical Theme” and came to terms that it was time to progress, reflect on the heart, intentions, make peace with the past and look to the future.”
This sculpture is made of fabricated steel and paint with dimensions of 10’ 4” high x 4’ wide x 4’ deep is sponsored by J. Howell Fine art. Its location is the corner of W. 2nd Street and Cloverdale Blvd.
One of Ortega’s sculptures, from his past “Constrained Geometrical Theme” series is, also on display in Cloverdale. While working on this series he envisioned the sculptures “as a metaphor for life, taking what constraints we have in any given moment in life and making the most of what we have at hand.”
