The space-engulfing sculpture called Soft Walls is composed of thousands of square feet of crocheted plastic enveloping wooden walls. The plastic encasement flows off the wall and puddles at the floor. Its combination of external flexibility and internal solidity might be thought of as the image of a tender and soft mother who is, in truth, the strength of the family. Kotani states, “In fact, one of the underlying motives was to honor my mother’s love of handwork and that of other women by employing this technique.” She transforms everyday materials with clever use of scale, a minimalist pallet and her handmade technique. Akiko Kotani’s art embodies the surprising power and attraction of simplicity. Her work contains a depth of feeling within an economy of means.
