How to get a rectangular light pattern

Thanks for the input Brian.

Do you think it would be possible to shape the light such that it projects as a rectangle?

I have these white painted columns that juxtapose to white painted cabinetry.
I am trying to accentuate the shape of the column.

My thinking was that if I could produce a small hairlight from the back of the column it would produce a small halo. Maybe even experiment with some gels to further distinguish the columns.

Optimally I would like to have the columns evenly lit from top to bottom (about 48 inches total)

Perhaps I might need to use more than one speedlight to disburse the light evenly?
