Printmaker Phil Lique will present the next Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist & Scholar lecture on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 5:30 p.m. CDT via Zoom. The lecture is free and open to the public and available via Zoom. Lique is a multidisciplinary artist working across print, sculpture, design and installation practices. Hailing from New England, He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design from Paier College of Art and a Master of Fine Arts degree in painting from Western Connecticut State University. Lique lives and works in Miami, Florida. Lique collects and (more importantly) reads books for historical and aesthetic research purposes. His interest in western civilization, religion, occult practices, and art history often become source material for his work, which manifests in sculpture, installation, printmaking, independent publishing and public programming. There is a regenerative cycle to his practice as he continuously borrows and reappropriates the content, ideas and connections he has forged between his communities and skill sets. Process is an emphasis of his practice, and he has an insatiable need to manipulate modest means to build upon that which he has already mastered or exhausted. He explores intuitively, makes obsessively, and reconstructs endlessly. He is guided by his own set of interests rather than searching for something new. To see his work, visit The University of Nebraska–Lincoln School of Art, Art History & Design’s Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist & Scholar Lecture Series brings notable artists, scholars and designers to Nebraska each semester to enhance the education of students.
