Julia Caroline Knowlton ’19

Julia Caroline Knowlton ’19 (Los Angeles, MFA) depicts survival from illness and sexual violence, and also paints a portrait of the artist striving to find living, literary mothers and sisters in her new book One Clean Feather (2019). In poems “sharp as silver, clean and stunning” Knowlton invites her readers on a flight from darkness into the light of autonomy, poetry, and hope—“the thing with feathers.”
