Maggie Mullin O'Hara is a multimedia artist from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, currently based in the South; specifically, Columbia, South Carolina. Her work exists as a hybrid form, borrowing from the traditions of the mediums of video, photography, performance and installation. It explores ideas of interconnectedness between the physical body and experiences of psychological balance and imbalance while proposing the possibility of fulfillment through the indeterminate. It challenges the trans-subjective nature of our roles in the experience of the work, as well as the potentiality for indetermination as change -- as having the capability to reverse pain into pleasure, or more radically, to collapse distinctions between the two.
Maggie received her Master's of Fine Arts in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015 and her Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Photography from Point Park University in 2013. She currently serves as Assistant Professor of Art and Gallery Curator within the Visual and Performing Arts Department at South Carolina State University.
