In traditional portraiture artists’ attempted to convey the psychological makeup of the sitter through careful observation, and manipulation, of their external appearances and by the setting or situation. In his ‘Life Maps = Mappa Vitae’ Kingsford-Smith builds on this tradition by providing an alternative representation of how a subject scripts themselves. He represents the subject’s life narrative rather than their external appearance. He depicts the aspects of the sitter’s life that they viewed as most significant to them. This includes key relationships, experiences, events, places, buildings, animals, etc. As with recollected memories these narratives are distorted, amplified, fragmented, and often involve the compression of time and the juxtaposition of locations and countries. The narratives he paints are intended to provide insights into the subject’s inner world. 2014
