The image was made in the seventies at Tattenham Corner, Epsom Downs, Surrey,
the day before the great excitment of the Epsom races. I saw the advertisement
hoarding being assembled from a distance and felt that the natural world was being
errased with a jigsaw of typographic forms. There was a sense of theatre as if the
scenary was being re-fabricated, the construction of the scene became the play.
I waited for the last pieces to be put in place, allowing the image to appear devoid
of any other visual reference except one tiny fragment of that other world.
I was excited by the linear geometry of the ladder, the angle of the arms and the
way they sharply interrupted and opposed the linear flow of the gigantic script.
It was like watching a gigantic game of snakes and ladders.
