Future Memoirs of Water

MANZANITA, OR, MARCH 2 - 30, 2024 – The Hoffman Center for the Arts proudly unveils an exclusive solo exhibition featuring the work of artist Keri Rosebraugh. An Oregon native spending much of her childhood at the coast, her presentation titled Future Memoirs of Water, delves into the profound interdependence between humanity and water.

Rosebraugh's body of work explores the captivating concept that water retains memory, sparking a

transformative dialogue on the inherent connection between human existence and this fluid element.

Through artistic research, the artist keenly observes water, observing its ability to echo and mirror the life

surrounding it. Rosebraugh posits that water serves as a potent portal bridging the realms of the

tangible and the intangible, celebrating the profound unity that binds us all.

Future Memoirs of Water promises to be an immersive experience, inviting viewers to contemplate the

deep symbiosis shared between humankind and this life-sustaining element.

The pieces featured in this exhibition draw inspiration from impactful locales and resources that have

surrounded the artist in recent years. Among these evocative sources are the vast expanse of the Paci c

Ocean along the US west coast, the untamed cliffs lining the Atlantic Ocean in Brittany, France, and the

historical Lake Bolsena, situated atop a once-active volcano north of Rome, Italy, to name a few.

"I feel like I am a contemporary explorer of nature, captivated by the allure of oceans, rivers, and lakes. Since 2017, I've immersed myself in the study of how water retains memory, an ongoing fascination that serves as the driving force behind my artistic practice. By communing with nature I believe this brings us closer to our own nature. My art aims to cultivate a deeper understanding of ourselves.”

Rosebraugh has been collecting samples of water from around the globe. She collaborates with this water to create one of a kind drawings, monoprints, paintings, installations, videos, and sculptures.
