BAMAL, at the Art Bar Kiama from 4 June to 2 August 2020.
A collection of paintings and photography exploring the connections to Earth (BAMAL) through contemporary Aboriginal iconography and art practice.
Using Air-Ink (made from air pollution), and many culturally significant media, local indigenous artist, visual arts teacher, and Wayapa Wuurrk Practitioner, Jaz Corr, has created a deeply personal and moving exhibition for the Art Bar in Kiama this June and July. Including a piece of immense scale entitled BAMAL made from Air-Ink and Red Centre paint. This diptych combines four iconographs drawn from the body movements of the Aboriginal practice Wayapa Wuurrk, and is truly magical in scale and movement.
Jaz has also included a series of BAMAL (Earth) elements painted onto salvaged vintage screen-printing screens using dried native foliage and gunanguyirngai (echnida) quill, with Ochre Ridge, Red Centre and Red Gum paint. And skilfully photographed images of her most treasured belongings, her personal collection of TOTEMS gifted to her from the BAMAL (earth).
This is one exhibition not to be missed. Due to Covid-19 trading restrictions there will not be an opening for this exhibition, however BAMAL will be on show for 8 weeks to allow a greater audience to experience Jaz’s incredible work.
