Ale is one of two resident artists working in our space until April 22nd.

Ale Monreal is a multi-disciplinary artist and film school dropout of Colombian and Chilean descent. Her body of work consists of several mediums ranging from films, paintings, and textile/needleworks to analog and digital photography. Drawing on inspiration from her childhood summers spent in Colombia at her grandmother’s, she merges traditional textile work, painting and analog photography with contemporary media. As a first-generation Canadian, she tries to capture the loss of wanting to be in two places at once and the roaming nature of belonging neither here nor there.
