A ladder you climb up and once you get to the top you just walk in there.

Grant is obviously channeling Jackson Pollock's Number Seven in this drawing. Does the ladder in the title refer to the ladder Pollock employed in creating his paintings, dripping and pouring paints from its heights? Or, could this be a commentary on Pollock's climb up the ladder of the art world and his fame, ego, and alcohol fueled destruction? Either way, the young artist has out-pollocked, Pollock.
