Richard Diran on Painting

“A finished canvas is to be cast off like a dry cocoon, a worn out sheath of skin, wriggled out of and shed, torn off the back of a snake whose coiled shadow is memory.  The body re-emerges intact, alive again and cognizant, transformed into a new creature.  The canvas, that skin of expressed memory in paint, remains forever.”

-Richard Diran
