Liam A/W 2015

A lecture given by the architect Glenn Murcutt changed the way Liam designer Emily Miller-Sharma considered art. ‘He talked about how still life artists give consideration to the space between the objects they represent. Instead of the oranges in a fruit bowl being the central focus to a painter, it’s the tension that the space between them creates,’ explains Emily.

This approach to still life paintings, combined with an image of a proposed memorial in Norway’s Sørbråten peninsula, where the monument is literally the absence created by a slice cut out of the landscape, were the influences for Liam’s collection The Space Between.
