Willorna Mendiola, of Los Angeles, CA is a youth constructionist whose love of life, art, and music translates into the peace and unity felt by everyone she builds with. Much of her work is inspired by natural beauty, motherhood, time, and earthbound undertones.
Willorna’s two-dimensional acrylic paint media often implies a sense of peace and reflection. This can be seen in the application of biomorphic shapes depicting the hierarchical relationship between the motherly figure and her child. Moreover, the focal point is usually the line-of-sight between the two figures.
Though, all of her art is one-point perspective, this approach amplifies the emotive aspects of sharing quiet moments in a world where the daily rat-race can often drown out vital parental responsibilities. Each painting’s conceptual balance is further unified by the limited use of colors that promote ‘reflection’ in blues and ‘tenderness’ in reds. She has also been known to paint interior fresco seccos’.
Willorna is the proud mother of Qamar and Aqueen Lenon, and a co-organizer of ‘Baby Get Down-Saturdays’ in Los Angeles, CA at the Artform Studio in Little Tokyo.
