In traditional portraiture artistsâ€™ 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 â€˜Life Maps = Mappa Vitaeâ€™ Kingsford-Smith builds on this tradition by providing an alternative representation of how a subject scripts themselves. He represents the subjectâ€™s life narrative rather than their external appearance. He depicts the aspects of the sitterâ€™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 subjectâ€™s inner world. 2014
