“Hocks has a flair for the absurd. In his large, hand-tinted photographs, he appears as a proper bourgeois, dressed immaculately in suit, tie, and white shirt, in a variety of deceptively plain stage settings. Seemingly unaffected by his surreal situation, he impassively holds his own.” —Donald Kuspit, critic
