About artist/note:

Of his own work, the artist states, “Now in my drawings I draw land because everybody in this word sees land every time they get up...” to interpret these thoughts regarding the landscape and convey a sense of the Arctic grandeur, Pudlo depicts a row of figures that function only to express the immensity and magnificence of their surrounding scenery.
