Jackie Hocking’s ‘Everyone, you know, someday, will die’ is a visual provocation. On an open palm poses a youth, face masked, arm drawn to fling. The work’s title, a reminder of our mortality, is poetic — each segment of the phrase separated by a comma, suggesting multiple readings.

Like the opening of a film, Hocking’s work is narratively driven yet mysterious. A premise, distilled into graphic terms. For collectors of contemporary prints, it will intrigue, asking do we hold our destiny in the palm of our hand?
