Kingsford-Smith’s artistic practice identifies trans-historical cultural assumptions. In this body of work, he explores a belief that exists in many cultures; that at the end of our earthly existence there will be an afterlife.

His etchings borrow from both ancient Egyptian engravings and medieval European art that represents conceptions of human mortality and the relationship between the sacred and the profane.
