    Of her Graces series, Korean-American Han states: 'The hybridization of the body of a specific Asian female with a western classical head challenges our familiar notions and stereotypes regarding beauty. Each "Grace" is captured in the midst of an everyday act, as opposed to an idealized pose of a classical sculpture.' (Hybrid Graces, p.41) Her works have been shown internationally and are held in various collections, including the Institut Valencià d'Art Modern, Valencia. She currently lives and works in Seoul.

    AP1 aside from the sold-out edition of 7.
