Mat O'Hara

Cruising the Echoes of Desire

The ephemeral journey of a longing look meanders like a rushing river flowing from an exterior space to an internal site. It resonates off the walls like an echo, sits for a moment, then projects itself back outward into dispersion.

O'Hara employs a multidisciplinary approach to visualizing moments of queer desire that traverse between public and private realms.
