We cannot journey into the dark side for a quick dip or an afternoon liaison. To understand our shadow completely takes a willingness to let go of what we think we know. It takes the force of a caged lion to break open the cellar doors that we ourselves chained closed many moons ago. -Debbie Ford, The Shadow Effect
Woodrow Nash, "The human "shell," outward appearance, or the external form merely distinguishes us from others. Deep inside each of us exists the moral fiber of who we really are. Nash's visual representations of the body work metaphorically and methodically to explore the masculine and feminine form - these works reveal the essential "spirit" of man."
