"In Kripal's most recent work - a series of terracotta assemblages - he has created casts from common moulds: primarily vintage baking pans and food container. The various cast forms are joined together in numerous variations and combinations. Each freestanding object is unique and appears partly architectural and partly functional. In groupings, they seem like ritualistic sacred containers or architectural models of an ancient city. In this installation titled Swarm, Kripal's influences remain consistent; although here he has imagined his own forms."
