Magie Hering was born in San Paulo, Brazil.
She exhibited extensively in Latin America and in New York City.
The following is a traslation from Portuguese, from an exhibition at the Galeria Sergio Caribé.
Her earliest works were aimed at re-creating human figures and still life.
In the early 1980s, she exhibited her work at a press conference, at the Legislative Assembly of the State of São Paulo and at the Lazio Art Gallery, at Shopping Vitrine, alongside Jota Zanelatto, Citron, Sergio Niculitcheff and Walter Minhoz.
Magie learned to photograph and began to record everything that was strange to her, that bothered her in some way or drew her attention.
"... when I look at the viewfinder of the camera, I isolate myself from the world, I abstract myself completely, I do not hear anything. Then I'll click ... "
Another mark in the artist's work are the bicycles, always present in her inspirations.
