In Love Hock mockingly looks at conventional relationships of
enraptured love between men and women.
Hoch used images of a popular dolls that at the time were mass
produced and marketed as being innocent, and full of wonderment.
The doll's eye looms large and her lips portay a nice polite
smile, yet it has a strange sinister looking face enhanced by
the fact that it has been cut at odd angles. On the other hand
we see a man staring not directly at the doll, but outwardly.
The doll is used to represent the modern women's altered ego.
Both male and female seem to be caught in a mechanized state
of mind presumably the effects of enraptured love.
