The modern ingenue challenges traditional codes and expectations. She is no longer the naive, enigmatic object of affection, inspiration, and possession that she was in the past.The modern ingenue confronts and eviscerates like Hannah Horvath. She is buoyantly idealistic like Leslie Knope, and a “complicated cat” like Piper Chapman.The Modern Ingenue issue is about all these sorts of people and more.If you would like to submit your work to us, please email us at

Rollick Magazine’s Modern Ingenue issue features the work of Parisian-born artist Lucy Lucy. Currently residing in Melbourne, Lucy Lucy has graciously carved her niche in the Australian urban art community. Her work moves between large-scale public murals, tribal ornaments, handmade accessories, textiles and bespoke fashion.
Lucy’s work explores femininity; her elegant figures are often depicted demonstrating strength or resistance to unseen forces through tension between body and fabric. Her interest in textiles and pattern make for vivid and bold imagery bursting with color and intensity. As an active member of the internationally acclaimed AWOL Crew, Lucy’s work has been exhibited and featured in Melbourne‘s NGV (National gallery of Victoria) and various galleries in London, Paris, Toronto and Sydney.
