Ophelia Jacarini

Artist

Ophelia works across a wide array of mediums, including photography, painting, drawing, embroidery and sculpture. Her work is intensely personal, revealing intimate details of her soul and thoughts. Her delicate techniques embody her ideas. Her sensitive approach acts upon traditional convention often governing the representation and vision of the body. The human body stands as a perfect subject with regards to her background both from fashion and fine arts.After a long study on the body as an envelope, she turned her focus to the intangible, such as mental madness, or the fetal memories.
