Le Gear works as a hybrid artist working at the interface of nature, water remedy intervention, and environmental art. She currently holds a studio at The Model in Sligo, Ireland. Her work has emerged from the outcomes of research, collaboration and fieldwork based around water and its memories held within various water bodies from Arctic Icebergs, the Baltic sea and Irish lakes and waterfalls; listening to the mystical, mythical and metaphysical forces that act upon and interact with water. Her work finds form in The Water Remedies, moving image, the still image, sound, and installation.
