Arielle is a multidisciplinary artist based in Montreal, born in 1989. After completing a Bachelor's degree in Art History at the Université de Montréal, she devoted herself entirely to creation by exploring various mediums such as painting, photography and immersive installations. Inspired by the world of dreams and the vision of the mythical universe, her works are imbued with a cosmic veil in order to question the relation of man to his own imagination. Arielle seeks to illustrate this confrontation between reality and the unreal and the way in which the instances of the human brain act on behaviors. She had many exhibitions opportunities during her 3 years of practice 2018 was particularly remarkable with among others her participation to the Chromatic festival 9th Edition as well as the realization of an immersive universe (Brèche) at the F-MR Station in collaboration with Alejandro FigueroaThese experiences have elevated her works and my level of recognition in the cultural community. The year 2019 has started in earnest with the Terra Una art residency in Brazil, and the birth of the ONEIROS project which was directly inspired from her experiences at Terra Una. She traveled to Portugal for the AgitLab art residency in july to showcase her ONEIROS project and create a mural to implant an immersive visual in the city. All her works are created in a perspective of awareness, celebrating the relationship existing between the Universe and humankind, starting deep reflections on our place in the world and the importance of respecting and honoring Mother Nature.

Started in 2018 and 2019, the series of works ‘’Cosmic Manifestations’’ and “ONEIROS” are the result of researches and studies about dreams and visions transmitted during sleep and meditative states.
They are insights of how the universe is constructed from my point of view.
Dreams are portals revealing clues of who we are and can give us access to a higher inner self. I am building structured landscapes to travel in limitless worlds and the awakening of mindfulness. These series aims to immerse the viewer in a transcendental space similar to a lucid dream, where consciousness and what we call ‘’reality’’ intertwine with the imaginary. Time no longer exists, space is indefinite, the viewer is thus confronted by a dimension external to his own, triggering deep reflections on the purpose of life on Planet Earth. A palette of vivid colors intertwined with chiaroscuro helps to convey the state of a dream and contribute to the dynamics of the whole. Most of the works in these series are marked by a certain darkness in order to favor this diving into a parallel and mysterious universe. Each created work thus becomes a cosmic manifestation in itself. These series initiate travels through worlds awakening reflections on the connection between Universe and humankind.
