Kingsford-Smith artistic practice identifies the trans-historical cultural assumptions underpinning seemingly unrelated artistic traditions. The belief that at the end of our earthly existence that there will be an afterlife was common to the religious and or spiritual beliefs of most cultures. The artworks in the exhibit signal both Egyptian tombs and medieval European art that represented the relationship between the sacred and the profane.

These cultural references are combined to demonstrate the extent that existential concerns transverse both disparate paradigms of thought and religious doctrine. In this exhibition he invites viewers to contemplate their own spiritual beliefs by way of comparison to earlier cultural understandings of human mortality.

The 19 framed etchings, titled ‘Scenes from daily life,’ line the gallery walls alluding to the ancient Egyptian practice of painting scenes from the life of the deceased onto the walls of their tomb.
