Kiama indigenous artist Jaz Corr has used some innovative mediums to create a collection of paintings and photographs exploring our connections to Earth.
BAMAL (meaning "earth" in the Dharawal language) will be showcased at the Art Bar, Kiama from June 4 to August 2.
The 38-year-old said she had been working on the project for about 18 months.
Using Air-Ink (ink made from air pollution), and "many culturally significant media", the visual arts teacher has aimed to create a personal, socially and environmentally aware experience.
Including an artwork entitled BAMAL made from the Air-Ink and Red Centre paint, Corr has created three series' of artworks.
"Air-Ink is quite a new product; I was one of the first visual artists to work with that medium," she said.
"It's ink that's made out of your diesel emissions from cars... It's like a cartridge that contains all these emissions and then they do a process to create the finished product.
"I love working with Air-Ink, because it's taking something that's quite destructive to our environment and creating something beautiful out of it.
"I think that really resonates to how we view the environment, and how we should be taking care of Mother Earth in that sense."
The exhibition incorporates work on salvaged screen-printing screens painted using dried native foliage and gunanguyirngai (echnida) quill; as well as photographed images of her most treasured belongings, her personal collection of totems.
Due to COVID-19 trading restrictions there will not be an official opening for this exhibition.
Instead, BAMAL will be on show for eight weeks to allow more people to see the exhibition.
"I would like the audience to enjoy contemporary Aboriginal art, and really think deeper about the things that we consume," Corr said.
"It really does have that environmental element.
"We're all custodians in a way, and I think with COVID, it really does tie in with what's happening around the world.
"We can see with the shutdown how that has created healing for Mother Earth. Everyone's talking about how clear the sky is, you can see the stars at night now... There's just this real connection to Earth with the series."
