Kettle Art will be presenting Hiraeth, featuring works by Richard Ross with special guest Jesse Sierra Hernandez.

Ross is a self-taught artist from Irving with a degree in history from the University of Dallas. He began forming his artistic voice in the atmosphere of the early hardcore punk scene of Dallas. During this time, he found glimpses of beauty in the chaos of specific moments, and to question the grand narratives that had formed his life’s early foundations. Ross developed his own metanarrative which he has called “The Road to the Store,” based on the Kantian concept that beliefs are formed from the question “what can I hope.”

Ross sees himself as a traveller along the road, with this question motivating his destination as one going to the store to shop for basic needs and desires. In his body of work, Ross has created a symbolistic cast of characters who play out his narrative in beautiful glimpses of the chaos and uncertainty within the journey.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through September 17.
