  • Catalogue Essay

    Masturbating Grace by Korean-American mixed media artist and 2009 Sovereign Asian Art Prize winner Debbie Han, hybridises a photographed body of a contemporary Asian women with a classical marble head of a goddess and suggests sexual autonomy, subversively addressing the perception of the idealised female. Achieving the marble-like skin texture and imposing sculptural presence is a meticulous and time-consuming process whereby Han digitally renders the entire skin surface of the figure, pixel by pixel.
