FUTURE TENSE is an homage to my special friend and esteemed local artist, Marjorie Grigonis. All of the materials found in the book are ephemera from Marjorie's' "artistic arsenal," objects she used in her own collages, or things she was going to use in future ones. The name "FUTURE TENSE" is an offshoot of Marjorie's earlier piece "PRESENT TENSE, a 2012 Snowflake piece. This book contains many deconstructed parts from that particular 2012 piece  showing that  art continues to live through the energies of others.
