Current Exhibition – June & July 2020


A collection of paintings and photographs exploring our connections to Earth (BAMAL) through the work of contemporary indigenous artist Jaz.

Using Air-Ink (ink made from air pollution), and many culturally significant media, local indigenous artist, visual arts teacher, and Wayapa Wuurrk Practitioner, Jaz, has created a deeply personal, socially and environmentally aware experience for the Art Bar Kiama this June and July.

Including an immense artwork entitled BAMAL made from Air-Ink and Red Centre paint, Jaz has created three series of artworks that celebrate BAMAL (Earth) elements. Incorporating work on salvaged screen-printing screens painted using dried native foliage and gunanguyirngai (echnida) quill; and skilfully photographed images of her most treasured belongings, her personal collection of TOTEMS gifted to her from the BAMAL (earth).

Due to Covid-19 trading restrictions there will sadly not be an official opening for this exhibition, instead BAMAL will be on show for 8 weeks to allow more people to experience Jaz’s creations.

‘BAMAL’ at the Art Bar Kiama from 4 June to 2 August 2020
