M. Ferreira-Norman is a fine artist and researcher working with language, sculpture, print, digital film and ecology.
Her work investigates phenomenological proposals on Geology, forwards socio-political commentary and takes frameworks from other disciplines such as Biomimicry, Stratigraphy and Linguistics.
Ferreira-Norman's practice explores the relationship between surface and depth, the physical world and the immaterial, and uses actions and its debris as artistic methodology. The ties between anthropos and the natural realm take the practice forward, delving into art, social and natural sciences. The whole body of work aims at propelling the importance of the role of the artist in the social and political contemporary sphere.
Ferreira-Norman has books in the Comic Books Library Collection in Lisbon, Deptford Does Art and at the Chelsea Library Book Arts Collection. She is a published author in peer reviewed publications and has won the Flow Sustainability Art Award 2017 as well as a scholarship with the Institute for Global Prosperity at University College London.
