Wild Awake : a collection of small spells


Flow Gallery is pleased to announce its final 2018 exhibition, “Wild Awake: a collection of small spells” by Abacus Corvus.  The exhibition, which features twelve one-of-a-kind, hand-painted and embroidered Giclee prints created by sisters, Jocelyn Mosser and Corina Dross, will run from December 14, 2018 to January 12, 2019. An opening reception will be held on Friday, December 14 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

Abacus Corvus is the collaborative love child of Corina Dross and Jocelyn (Jo) Mosser—artists, sisters, and close friends. They both enjoy many mediums, but Jo has a special affinity for painting and Corina for drawing.  In 2011, Jocelyn had a strange and fruitful idea: a calendar for the coming year called “2012: The Last Calendar You’ll Ever Need.” Every year since the first “last” calendar, Jocelyn and Corina have teamed up to make a limited-edition calendar for the next year. Rather than repeat what worked once, they begin each project with new questions and genuine curiosity about what will happen. While making their 2017 calendar, Corina and Jo decided to make a calendar of "small spells"—pairing images and words to serve as focal points for people to use to amplify their own healing and magic in the world. The 2019 calendar, Wild Awake, is the third calendar of small spells. Corina and Jocelyn both have a lifelong commitment to healing, and draw on the same sensitivities and attunement they use in their healing practices when they make art. This can lead to unusual creative habits, especially when working towards a print deadline, as they collaborate also with the unknown, listening to the current moment before striving ahead.
