Using the tools of observation and perception, Expression of the
draws connections between the seemingly
opposing methodologies behind the investigation of energetic
phenomena, both scientific and intuitive.
Le Gear's practice explores light and homeopathy and the intersections
where these explorations collide. A coexistence in this search are
ways of observing light particles in other dimensions, particles of
light underground in fairy circles to energy held within scientific
instruments used to observe the stars. One side values the ethereal,
the vague, the holistic,light, spatial experiments and synesthaesic
metaphors – possibility. The other side requires grounding,
definition, analysis, outcomes -but is searching for the intangible.
Differing perspectives lending to a balanced approach.
As part of her working methodologies, the artist investigates
trituration, a homeopathic process which allows energy and resonance
to be released from a space.There are many aspects to space and time
and how they are entwined. Events from these spaces may still be held
within the space. It cannot be said that one aspect is more important
than another. Together they form a whole. This whole may be expressed
under the heading of the integration of knowledge and direct
The concept of the the Infinitesimal is used to express the idea of
objects so small that there is no way to see them or to measure them.
Le Gear is engaged in field work in ritual archaeological and
observational sites throughout Ireland using the form and content of
these sites to understand the infinitesimal energy as held in story
and found material and energetic fragments. Bringing the scientific
and archaeological dimension into relation through homeopathic
processes transforms these working spaces into creative sites of
practice in which the infinitesimal becomes apparent and its the
effect of its potency may be felt.
