About The Show

In his first Midwest solo exhibition, Patrick Martinez examines a contemporary crisis: the dwindling quality of life due to the consumerist and nutritional choices of mainstream America. Buy Now Cry Later poses as a metaphor for the overall consumption and insatiable need for “more” in the modern world. We are stressed and medicated, balancing our fears over job security, guns, cost of living, violence, diet, money, race relations, education and health. All of these issues weigh the same when it comes to societal problems in dire need of solving; all are symbols that point to a troubled collective culture–a melting pot identity in crisis.
