This is where we will be regularly posting details of confirmed artists who are contributing work to the forthcoming issue of the journal.

Sigrid Holmwood

Sigrid Holmwood explores painting as the possibility of a wider performative practice. Through historical research she cultivates crops, documented for their use as pigments, in order to manufacture her own paints. And for the painting's substrate she also makes her own papers. The image below shows Sigrid straining woad leaves; a process which eventually produces the indigo pigment. We are absolutely delighted that Sigrid has found the time to be able to contribute to the next issue of UI, whilst also in the midst of her practice-based PhD at Goldsmiths and final preparations for her third solo show, The Peasants Are Revolting! at Annely Juda Fine Art, London, (May 24 - July 8).  You may have also seen Sigrid’s work in last year’s Champagne Life exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery. 

Michael Hall

London based artist, writer and curator, Michael Hall will be contributing to the next issue of the journal. Michael co-founded Invisible Print Studio with Coralie Sheppard in 2013 and has published some formidable print editions by some esteemed contemporary artists, the likes of Bruce McLean, Simon Patterson and Bob Matthews to name but a few. Most recently he has been involved in the co-curation of The Arca Project, currently showing at PayneShurvell Projects in Suffolk. Team UI is excited to have Michael on board for the next issue.

Emily Garfoot

We are delighted to announce Emily Garfoot as one of the contributors to our 4th issue, which will be published on 21 June. Currently working in the East Midlands, Garfoot's photographic practice explores what it means to be human in an automated/digital age. These beautiful images transcend the mundane into almost spiritual scenes of quiet contemplation. We loved these photographs at Format Festival this year and are looking forward to seeing what her response to the theme is. Take a look at her website here:
