As a sculptor, writer, graphic designer and filmmaker, Michael MacGarry straddles the studio and independent film worlds. While his practice illustrates an exploration of Africa’s enduring Western imperialism, some imagery manifests as purely free and abstract. Select components of his fine art production are authored under the avatar of All Theory. No Practice., while his design-based projects can be found under the name of Modern Amusement.
Michael MacGarry holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Witwatersrand. MacGarry was the Standard Bank Young Artist for Visual Art 2010. He lives and works between Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa.
