Wednesday, June 18 

We may be swept up in a swirl of fantasies as our dreams seep into the daylight hours. The psychic Pisces Moon melts away the hard edges of reality, especially during her early morning hook-up with blurry Neptune. Although the mists of illusion might prevent us from seeing what’s next, a supportive alignment between sensual Venus and excessive Jupiter makes everything appear better than it actually is. Luckily, clarity returns later in the day.

Even if your life seems to be unfolding as planned, you still aren't sure that you should trust any good news you hear today. Unfortunately, you might also learn something that raises your concern. You may overcompensate by gathering all the information you can find to justify your positive perspective. However, you really don't need any more data; just make a choice and then take a few healthy steps in the direction you want to go. Follow your heart and don’t look back.

Sentences is an exhibition of text-based work that explores self-referential language. Printed on paper or displayed on a video monitor, the works consist of original or appropriated texts that describe their own condition and enact those descriptions to create minimal, visual compositions. These compositions embody the semantic content of the sentences themselves. This ongoing project examines the ability of language to modify itself, to transform itself into a spatially situated object, or to obscure itself beyond legibility.
