Working in a constructivist/minimalist tradition, Aschheim began in the late 1980s to develop a style of abstract drawings characterized by intricate structures and complex spatial organizations. This is an elegant example of her recent work, in which diagonal lines of varying length and thickness, drawn on both sides of a translucent paper, are scattered throughout the sheet suggesting the dynamism of a magnetic field.
