Brock Enright’s multi-media practice includes an intricate series of large drawings scored into mirrored glass. When speaking of these works, New York Times critic Roberta Smith says:

[Enright] tries his hand at what might be called disturbing elegance, by scratching tangles of spidery lines into mirrors and lighting them from behind…The linear delicacies of Wols and the slices (and slickness) of Lucio Fontana are precedents. Mr. Enright’s own penchant for spookiness and violence persists here, in a quite different form.

Enright’s solo shows include Raising Dead Mothers, Vilma Gold Gallery, London; Good Times Will Never Be The Same, Perry Rubenstein Gallery, New York; Precision Of Positions, White Flag Projects, St. Louis; and Satellite Son, Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, New York. His work has been shown in group exhibitions at MoMA PS1, Long Island City; MASS MOCA, North Adams; LACE, Los Angeles; Royal Academy of Art, London; and Anton Kern Gallery, New York. Brock Enright lives and works in Brooklyn.
