My "Ladder" series began in 2010. It began as a photographic project in which I build ladders out of fallen branches from trees in the locations I shot. The installations began tributes to the locations and my connection to them. The photographs are the proof or the relic left behind after the action of creating them on site was complete. The ladders all remain standing for as long as the elements allow. Normally, this is not too long since the structures are made of dead or dying branches held together with rope and just a few fasteners so nothing too permanent remains after the ladder has fallen.
There are many meaning I or anyone else can come up with to explain the whole process. The allegories are boundless. I prefer to not put too much of an emphissis on this. I prefer that it remains ambiguous. This way the mystery continues and the project is never really finished.
This edition of "Ladder #4" is a 4.5" x 4.5" pigment print made with archival pigment Ultrachrome inks on Hahnemüle 305 gsm Photo Rag Ultra Smooth paper.
The print is signed and comes mounted in a Crescent® WHITE CORE, acid-free smooth white board.The mat is beveled cut and is 4-ply.
The mat is hinged to a white board backer with museum fabric tape.
The mounted print comes in a sealed clear cellophane bag.
To make framing simple and cost effective for the collector, the mat board is cut to fit in most standard 8x8 frames.
