"Whether you view Woody's work as transpersonal art or simply a mirror of ordinary biological urges contacted with other worlds, filled with living beings, what is certain is they are our collective dreams and visions, the dramatic personae of our own imaginations realized as independent entities with a life of their own."
"By descending down into the depths of the soul, and not primarily by a painful acquisition of many manual skills, the artist attains the power of awakening other souls." Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Woody paintings are collected by luminaries, visionaries and champions, they are a garden of colorful human emotions; an array of our collective imaginations, they are transpersonal."
James e. Woody, 1995.
