Eros Ludique

Mark Harfield tells:
“Sans Tabù are about celebrating sensuality, joyful physical connection. My challenge was to keep the flavour of my personal work, match this to imagery that was in keeping with the Sans Tabù ethos and also create work that discerning clientele would want to wear on their bodies. I met this challenge by keeping the hard hand-drawn graphic starting point, that I deploy in all my work, to fill the area, subjects and objects included. I introduced textures, next I let colour move in and around the space. I wanted colour to intoxicate, to fill a dimension all on its own. Aware that as the images are worn, wrapped around parts of the body, the works in their totality would be compromised; one may only sense a glimpse of the subject matter. Colour, texture and line had to work independently and inclusively, in part and in total of the overall narrative.
As to the subject matter itself, I cannot give such a clear reasoning to it. I lay my pencil on the blank sheet of paper and often I am as surprised as anyone at what appears. The word that kept me on course was Ludic, which is from the french word Ludique, meaning ‘showing spontaneous and undirected playfulness’.
