Morgan O’Hara’s practice researches the vital movement of living beings through LIVE TRANSMISSION, a performative drawing process she invented in 1982. Her drawings are often done in international performance art festivals; commissioned as site-specific wall drawings; and are in the permanent collections of museums and art institutions in Europe, Asia and the US. O’Hara teaches master classes in drawing and the psychology of creativity. In 1989 she did her first site specific wall drawings and began the practice of aikido, a Japanese martial art. Important residencies include MacDowell Colony, New Hampshire; Virginia Center for the Creative Arts; Macau Museum of Art, China; and others. She is the recipient of fellowships from Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Gottleib Foundation, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, amongst others. Publications include five volumes of LIVE TRANSMISSION drawings. O’Hara lives in New York and works internationally.
