Constrained Geometries #2 – Hector M. Ortega

Hector states; "Steel as a medium has enabled me to translate gentle arcs, rolling waves, and tapering geometries into forms, that once interconnected, will evoke a sense of place, calm, and order to our environment. I want people to be excited as I am for a project and to be inspired to do more with every opportunity that is given to them. It is my duty to uphold a standard that is inspirational to all."

On display on Cloverdale Bvd., near the Chamber of Commerce, is Hector’s sculpture "Constrained Geometries #2" sponsored by Jane & Ron Pavelka . "Constrained" of fabricated steel construction with a natural oxidized patina is 9′ x 9′ x 9′ and was judged "Best of Show". According to the artist, "Constrained Geometries #2 is part of an ongoing exploration of basic elemental forms, working with them to realized complex, but simplified compositions. In a way this new series is 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."
