'From Portugal to Australia: Retrospective' marks Victoria Cattoni’s recent return to Australia after 18 years of being based in Southeast Asia. It is also her first solo exhibition in Melbourne in over 20 years.

The decision that led to her first trip to Portugal, to an arts residency set in the landscape of the Alentejo region southwest of Lisbon, was pivotal in her return to and ongoing commitment to painting. Cattoni has continued to return to Evoramonte since 2012 and will take up her fifth residency at Obras in August of this year. The body of work on exhibition is a selection of paintings from these residencies and from periods spent painting in Tasmania between 2012 and 2016 and more recently, in Melbourne.
