Natsuko Hattori works in the medium of fabric. Fabric her my medium of choice because people everywhere can relate more easily to this material, which conveys warmth, natural softness and the intimate human touch. The act of wrapping is central to her sculptures. Hattori's sculptures are created from balls that are individually wrapped with fabric and bounded together to make up an entire whole. Each ball represents the inner state of mankind. The gesture of wrapping each round ball is an act of transformation that converts pain, sadness and despair into positive energy, such as love or a prayer for comfort. Her work conveys a sense of happiness and celebrates the human spirit.
