Max Meijer - Lique Schoot: Driven, Manipulative and Vulnerable
Lique photographs herself every day since 2003 with an analogue miniature camera, casually and manually without any further aids. A film roll has 36 images, and Lique uses these film rolls as a kind of diary. Thus, every month she submits between 28 (February) and 31 images to the photo lab where these are developed. The prints are stored on a CD. In this manner she compiles a kind of retrospective diary or calendar of images.
Flos Wildschut - A number of reflections on Lique Schoot's work
Ever since she graduated from the Arnheim Academy of Arts (1997), Lique Schoot has painted self-portraits. Her oeuvre, however, is not automatically to be classified in the tradition of the self-portrait.
Veerle Van Durme - Lique Schoot
Lique Schoot exclusively paints herself. She is making self-portraits for more than 10 years now. As of October 2003, she has been making a picture of herself every day. These photographs act as visual diaries. Some of the images started out digitally and these are used as a basis for her paintings.
