Along the Way

"Kindred" is a sculpture created by Gerard Basil Stripling that was installed in front of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Office Building in Cerritos in April 2014.

The artwork is composed of three tall sculptures fabricated in corten steel and accented with bands of different colors of resin. The art pieces stand 10, 12 and 14 feet in height and are surrounded by neutral-colored small stone rocks that complement the Kaiser building and the art pieces. The sculptures are meant to represent the strength found in family and community.

Stripling is a well-recognized local artist who has been a sculptor for more than 10 years. He has public art placements throughout Southern California, including in Brea, Laguna Beach, Irvine, Long Beach and Anaheim. Stripling is known for utilizing shape, color and form in his contemporary artwork.
