Inward to the Bones
Georgia O'Keeffe's Journey With Emily CarrBook - 1998
In February 1930, Emily Carr and Georgia O'Keeffe met at an exhibition of O'Keeffe's paintings in New York. Inspired by the idea of a bond between these two powerful women painters, award-winning poet Kate Braid has expanded the momentary meeting into a passionate, revolutionary friendship. She begins by imagining Emily Carr as an unconventional muse, and Georgia O'Keeffe as a woman in search of her inner landscape. In Georgia O'Keeffe's voice, Braid envisions what might have happened if the two women had visited each other in the landscapes that meant so much to them: O'Keeffe's New Mexico and Carr's British Columbia. Thus begins an extraordinary journey through landscape, art, and desire -- and inward to the bones.
