CULVER CITY, Calif. – June 10, 2013 – Hinge Modern gallery, a full-service art advisory and collection management company located at 8545 Washington Boulevard in Culver City, made its public debut with a grand opening reception on the evening of Saturday, June 8, 2013. Hinge Modern’s inaugural exhibition – “Marks” – features a new body of work by painter Zhenya Gershman. “Marks” remains on exhibition through July 13, 2013 by appointment only with Hinge Modern’s director and curator, Caspar Martin.

Gershman’s “Marks” is a living portrait changing over time. Centered around Snyder as a human specimen, the ability to look at each of the multiple sittings spanning more than a decade not only allows the viewer to be a part of the aging process of the body, but to experience a type of travel through time, space, and the many states and dimensions of the human soul.

For “Marks,” Martin has created a special installation that supports Gershman’s art by draping the gallery walls with translucent fabric and suspending the artworks. Because Gershman added the element of wings to her most recent paintings of Snyder, resulting in a true metamorphosis of his anatomy, Martin’s objective is to amplify their sensation of levitation.
