Philadelphia artist Matt Pruden has created several bodies of work based on his fascination with early-twentieth century history, literature, and art as chroniclers of the human spirit. In this particular series End of the Earth, Pruden has focused on historic polar expeditions of the time period. He is interested in the cultural psyche of the often ill-prepared adventurers who dreamt and risked their lives to explore the extreme unknown. Pruden's watercolors, like many photographs of these early expeditions, depict small figures within a vast, blank, and overwhelmingly barren landscape. The figures are quiet, isolated, and stoic amidst their formidable surroundings. Each image captures a solitary moment of their epic story with many of the narrative details forever left untold.
