The Art of Motherhood

Since immersing myself in the motherworld in 1989 I have observed the rise in the visibility of humans engaged in the practice of birth and caregiving. This visibility has translated into music, scholarship, literature, theater, and most recently a rise in fine artists lending their passion to making video, photography, paintings, and performance. I am thrilled by this because making the labor, love, and struggles of motherhood visible lends itself to introspection, observation, and contemplation of mother-work, mother-identity, and the ties that bind. Indeed, I feel blessed to have been born exactly at this time and to have been an active participant in this process. As Alana Ruben Free said to me the other day after an especially tedious and frustrating week, “at least we changed the world.” Martha Joy Rose
