ABOUT THIS PIECE: Stop a Thief and Runaway. Ranaway from the subscriber, on the 2d ult. A negro boy named JESSE, 17 years old, 5 feet 5 or 6 inches high, well made, is of a lively air and speaks good English; was born in North Carolina. Stole from me a grey coat and waistcoat, and nankeen overalls–from Providence, a two mast cedar boat. Who every will return said boy to me, or secure him so that I get him again, shall receive Thirty Dollars and all necessary expenses. All persons are cautioned against harboring said boy. BENJ. SHORES, jun.
ARTIST'S STATEMENT Centered in spirituality, I create work that seeks out the connections to and lessons from my African and Native American past. By mixing symbols and meaning, by affirming the potency of the past, by honoring the holy, I extend an invitation to contemplate the significance and depth of the power within. Currently, I am working in and across the medium of painting, collage, and mixed media to find those intersections and crossroads where the spirits dwell. In so doing, I hope to further understand and establish a relationship with that that has gone before me.
