Georgia-Lucy Ingall is a patron saint of the Hobart art and music community. The breadth of wisdom and blessing from this holy icon knows no bounds. Wherever one looks, there is Georgia-Lucy. Those who pray to the image of Georgia receive endless support when in need. Georgia is known for a restless determination and for creating a diverse and energised cultural scene.
But even the Patron Saint of Georgia-Lucy must take a moment from time to time for self-love and preservation. Here Georgia is depicted as The Holy Mother, standing in the kitchen at the Fern Tree Arts Hall. Georgia cradles the Holy Hot Water Child to her chest and awaits coffee while looking for the strength to continue navigating the moral disasters of Tasmania’s past and present public landscape.
