“The artist marks her territory, demands a reframing of initial perceptions and provides an invitation to dig deeper.”

“Pattern Recognition is my response to our politically charged times. In this exhibition I utilize text and found objects to examine patterns of behavior and thinking, confronting my own latent biases and those woven into our national fabric.”

In conjunction with the exhibit, Martz had the idea to turn “Danger of Nostalgia” into a means of engagement by encouraging visitors to use the wall as a selfie backdrop. When posted to social media and tagged, the post triggered a $5 donation by the Artist to Planned Parenthood. ZINC contemporary joined in to match and several private donors followed suit to keep the posts coming – In total, $3,000 was donated to the organization.
