She has had solo exhibitions in Pirosmani Gallery, Tbilisi Historical Ethnography Museum and the Gallery of Tbilisi State Academy of Arts.

“In my works I try to create the ideal world with a lot of sun, love, passion, light, in all possible aspects from the life experience. These are the values I believe in and want to convey them on canvas and silk with natural materials, with gems, pigments, turquoise, quartz,” noted Peradze.

The artist stated the new project, Terra Mater, is a spatial composition where she consciously used wealth from the heart of land.

“For me, the Earth, our mother nature, our Terra Mater is the only living and sensitive organism in the vast universe. Let us take care and look after our mother,” Peradze said.
