Aria Luna’s exhibition “Fusion Tide” takes a fantastical look at a real issue, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Her monster creation, Bogo Mogo, above, has a hunger for plastic and must be stopped by the mythical protectors of the sea.
In the middle of a cafe on a late Saturday morning, Aria Luna is plopped on a white cushioned chair, doodling. She has a lavender-colored meringue cookie in one hand, green marker in the other. Her hazel eyes are fixated on her notebook, and her wispy brown curls gravitate toward the paper.
Aria, an 8-year-old Los Altos resident, has a penchant for art. But she is a package deal, also a lover of sweets, video games, math and making sense of the world and its flaws.
