“Green Light”

An old mannequin torso from the first period of Julia Janus fashion. After the closure of the shops, the torso remained unsold due to the drooping of the neck. On that day, the sunlight fell through the leaves of the indoor plants, which had grown so much that the yellow-green colours in contrast with the blue shadows were simply stunning in their intense colour. The canvas-covered frame seemed too flat to convey that testimony of life. So the ‘wounded’ torso of the mannequin was transformed into a painting-sculpture which I called ‘Green Light’.
