The "Stanza" Collection

by Bethany Cochran

Stanza [stan-zuh]

Noun.
An arrangement of a certain number of lines, usually four or more, sometimes having a fixed length, meter, or rhyme scheme, forming a division of a poem.

//

The collection of original line drawings on paper ranging in size from 16x20” to 18x24”.

//

I am thrilled to share this collection with you. The intertwining of poetry mechanics and this line drawing collection fit together perfectly. This collection has been an intensive time of study and reflection on my time as a dancer and the human form. Throughout the collection you will find a focused interest in posture, movement and powerful pauses. I hope you enjoy the collection as much as I do.
