FITZROY & COLLINGWOOD
Fitzroy, although often defined by its high-end fashion and café culture is intensely dualistic - it's eclectic gentrified surface undercut by a deep indigenous significance. Its unrivaled creative audacity illuminates Fitzroy from every angle.

Camilla Tadich's practice focuses on the nocturnal Australian landscape and explores spaces within darkness. Fleeting moments are captured as light moves in uncanny ways through trees and along roads. Senses are enhanced as we traverse the darkened landscapes of these paintings. Tadich's experience with the Australian bush and the Victorian fires leads her to create work that represents the beauty and disquieting qualities of nature.
Tadich's work was included in the Bushfire Australia exhibition at Tarrawarra Museum of Art in 2010 and her work features as part of the Artbank, Bundanon Trust, City of Whitehorse and Nillumbik Shire collections. As well as winning the peoples choice award at the Fletcher Jones Art Prize, Tadich has been a finalist in the Nillumbik Shire Art Prize, the RBS Art Prize, Waterhouse Natural History Prize and is the recipient of an Australian Council for the Arts New Work Grant. In 2007 Tadich completed the Bundanon Residency in New South Wales.
Most recently she has been included in Simon Gregg's book, New Romantics: Darkness and Light in Australian Art.

"A huge thank you for Friday. I loved it . Thank you for being so generous. I will certainly be recommending Art Walk Melbourne!"

"Over the past few years I have participated in several Artwalk visits to galleries and have enjoyed every one of them. As an amateur artist and art enthusiast I have really enjoyed talking to the gallery owners about new and emerging artists as I am interested in the process they go through once completing art school, finding a gallery to represent them, and then selling their work. The best thing about going with a group, such as Artwalk, is the ability to ask questions and interact with the gallery owners and artists on a more personal level which would probably not happen if you dropped into the gallery by yourself. The walks are extremely well organised - we visitied a number of galleries in a short period of time, we saw a vastly different collection of works and genres. I have found Artwalk to be a very enriching experience, both culturally and socially, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone interested in the rich and vibrant Melbourne art scene".
