Barbara Hee's Zwilling (Twin) features an elongated upright elliptical form splitting a pair of roughly twinned rectangles that lean in parallel unison. Her works often feature rectangles, ellipses, triangles and lines yet are not associated with geometric-constructive art. Rather, they function as gestures or sign language like that found in modern expressive dance, "as bearers of a movement that emerges from the body."
