The current Covid-19 pandemic reveals the difficulty, labor dynamics, and joys of family life. As the national health crisis redefines our homes and what we value, many parents struggling to hold jobs have been forced to become full-time caregivers, teachers, tech support, and emotional support to their children. Artists Jessica Witte and Christine A. Holtz highlight the chaos and catharsis of parenthood amplified by the current situation. Both use their children as subject matter and inspiration; often using repetition to speak to the mundane. The investment of time in the hand-embroidered cloth and floor quilt drawings spotlight the work of caregiving. Both artists are teaching online, homeschooling their children, and making art in response to this new normal.
