Penguin Paradox, 2010:
Brock Enright is admired across the contemporary art world for his ability to create striking images, sculptures, and films that jar us out of the boredom of everyday life. Taking his inspiration from varied sources such as movies, art history, extreme sports, and heavy metal music, Enright often juxtaposes disparate elements to create images wherein the classical coexists with the uncanny. Suggesting relationships beyond the obvious, Enright's drawings and photos typically have modern, humorous, or mysterious sensibilities. Since receiving his MFA from Columbia University in 2001, Enright has shown in a number of prestigious groups shows and festivals, and has also had solo exhibitions in Berlin, London, and New York City. He is also the subject of the award-winning documentary film Brock Enright: Good Times Will Never Be The Same (2009). Enright lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.

Michelle Elzay's thoughtful photographs employ many of the formal conventions of still life, but the results have both a forensic feel and an intimate appeal. Here, she shoots her grandmother's minks, a china set, and her childhood stuffed animals. Hoot is a take from another series, in which she photographed a group of birds one after another, as to let each's individual personality shine. All of Elzay's photographs are printed on archival Ilford silk paper; each arrives signed, numbered, and with a certificate of authenticity.
