This studio-based thesis investigates how the artist and the sitter interact with one another during the process of portraiture, and how the interpersonal relationship between artist and sitter affects the narrative quality of portrait art. I observe how the familiarity and intimacy of a relationship frame the process of portrait painting and my response to it as an artist, collaborating with my husband, a person with whom I have a strong established relationship, and who is a willing participant in a visual and psychological exploration of the portrait process. Intersubjective theory is investigated and applied as a theoretical frame to explore the portrait painting-making process as a lived experience from both the artist's and the sitter's perspectives. A portrait painting was produced, and an animated video was also completed as an experimental portrayal of the natural dynamics of the sitter and the artist in the portrait making process. While considering other portrait artists' interaction with their subjects and how this relationship affects their work, I also discuss intersubjectivity as it affects the practice of portraiture, and its significance in art education.
