"Ladder Top #7" 2021 is the first installment of the ladder top series since it began in 2016.
Like many of Hochbaum's multiples, the series had a burst and then rests. For winter 2021, the artist revisitshis love for the ladder to the sky imagery and tall, thin format. For him, they are not unlike the golde embelished alter pieces of saints of eatern Europe.
The ladder is the artist's icon and is frequently found in much of his work.
