Organism is Ophelia Jacarini’s first complete body of work that deals with impact of society

on each of us.In this series, she examined the idea of Judgement, pain, mental disorders, beauty and how they appear in the visible human body. What shape does the body make when suffering? Are skin disorders considered beautiful or ugly, and why? Why do we see the occasional disfiguration in some human bodies, and how do we perceive them? 
To whom beauty belongs? Can we change our perception of beauty over time? All of these questions manifested themselves as answers in the form of paintings seen in this body of work.
