Bender

28 June 2019 | Diary

Alan comes over to enlist our help in writing a short artist profile for him. We helped him with a grant application recently and he was successful, so now we’re his go-to helpers for such things. Samara understands what art funding bodies want to see, while I’m quite good with the old wordies. Alan deserves the grant money without anyone’s help though: it will let him arrange a proper archive for his thousands of beautiful photographs of Glasgow art life going back some forty years. He has lots of pictures of young Justin Currie. We hammer out Alan’s profile in just a few minutes while I drink Gladeye IPA. He comments that I’m “turning into a right bender,” though I think he means “pisshead.”
