"Other works are large totems, stacked abstractions not of animals, but of the objects that fill our daily lives. Hoag has conciously named the ones that feel like a presence accordingly, ...Chum has a similar effect, with a copper-banded tube slung over its back and hanging down like arms, and dimples in the elongated metal "head" like a thousand primitive eyes."
