Statement

"Hocking's approach has always been a varied one, but consistently emanating from a deep commitment to making use of existing derelict materials and finding beauty in decay. He's worked in rust - gaudily framing with the reverence of old master paintings, enshrined objects found in abandoned buildings, even constructed a pyramid of old tires. For the International Shrinking Cities project, he documented aspects of the lives of the scrapper subculture, and from his vast experience with Detroit's abandoned spaces, he's been giving unique Detroit tours to visiting artists...While Hocking maintains that his work is often motivated by irritation at something or other, it would seem it really stems from compassion: compassion for forgotten places and those things we'd rather keep out of sight, and hence out of mind." 
--Nick Sousanis, Editor - The Detroiter online
