Glasgow: s.p., n.d. (2008)
23 x 18cm, black offset on thick paper which has been hand painted by the artist. This is one of ONLY 8 such small paintings that were done in a series which covered all of the Scottish professional teams. Each painting is satyrical – mentioning some strange fact about the club – which is typed on a small sheet. That text is placed in the frame under the painting, the painting is signed, titled and numbered in pencil on the top.
A nice present for someone who has a sense of humour about their team – here the mighty Bairns – Falkirk. We not selling this one because for over 50 years we have supported this club through thick and thin – and we have less hair on our heads as a result. COYB. The period of time that this painting references, by the way, was one of the worst in Falkirk’s history when the absurd and dodgy chairman Fulston screwed us over for years (and even got invovced in dubious brown paper bag transactions in motorway service stations) and appointed one of our worst manager’s ever in John Lambie, We don’t miss either in any way. Bitter? Much!
We understand a full set of these paintings were donated by the artist to the Hampden Museum of Scottish Football. In glass and wood frame – 35 x 28.5cm.
