Dreams of Freedom

My piece, called "Dreams of Freedom," is based on the fourth advertisement. It was about a woman slave named Suck, and a man named Prince. As I read the ad, images of the two running away came to mind. Inspired, I decided to make a charcoal/pastel drawing of the two slaves. In the picture, ghosts of Suck and Prince are seen running through the woods to the river, and all the while, the forest creatures see them off. The river symbolizes a "passage" or "doorway" to freedom. Once they get there, they are free. Suck and Prince are portrayed as ghosts because there's a chance that none of this is really happening, thus the name "Dreams of Freedom." The words in the picture, such as "freedom" and "run away" are the voices of the animals and the slaves before them telling them that they can make it. It is unknown whether or not Suck and Prince achieved their freedom, but their stories were an inspiration to many runaways after their time.
