Born in the hillside of Tuscany, Rita Perraudin, r p, lives in Switzerland, in Sion, the capital of Valais. 

Her works "essences" and "traces" make up a search for the intensity of light and colour and, at the same time, a denunciation cry against banal repetition which is a prison for any individual autonomy. 

In her more recent productions, the artist creates suggestive compositions through the combination of acrylic painting with pigments, cristals or sands, collected during her numerous travels through various continents. On the fine linen structure utilized for the paintings, the depth obtained by the superposition of several colour layers constitutes a harmonious contrast with the ascending profile of the other utilized materials. 

Likewise, in her sculptures and mobiles, the movement of evolving traces on metal interact with the shapes of overlapping sheets on which the accumulation of metal filings and fine welding suggest metaphysical energies full of strength and in perpetual movement. 

In utilizing the techniques of etching and aquatint, the artist creates extremely fine engravings in which she underlines the evolution of traces, as is the case in the current incision artwork currently developed in the art workshop "Arte" of A. Maeght in Paris. 

Member of the Swiss Society of Visual Artists, Visarte, r p, exhibits her works in Switzerland, in Europe and other places throughout the world.
