Influenced by the women painters of the Mexican school, such as Maria Izquierdo, Olga Costa, and Frida Kahlo, Magali Lara takes up an interest in still life, objects, and dreamlike atmospheres. These elements are used to compose a unique symbolic language that she has brought to the fields of animation, drawing, writing, ceramics, the artist's book, painting, and textiles. Mainly associated with Conceptual art, Magali Lara has been constantly working on a "poetics" that talks about the body, intimacy, desire, motherhood, childhood, sexuality, and everyday life; all this from a perspective of 'femininity' that she recognises as inexorable. Starting from the ordinary and the visceral of the human body allows her to make a review of the human condition, something that the artist considers essential in the social function of art.

Since the nineties, she has worked at the Facultad de Artes de la Universidad Autónoma de Morelos. She is currently part of the Academic Body of the Master's Degree in art production and participates as a jury in several biennials and artistic production, and as a study plan advisor in various arts education institutions. She is a member of the Sistema Nacional de Creadores FONCA, which she accessed for the seventh time in the 2020-2023 period. In 2019 she received the Medal of Merit in Arts from Mexico City's Congress.

Currently lives and works in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
