The sculpture "4/92" by Erich Hauser is committed to his understanding of art in the 1970s. Two parallel axes grow out of the crystalline-broken base, their tips striving towards the sky. The splitting into individual geometric forms, however, does not lead to a fragmentation of the basic pyramidal structure. In this respect, the prismatic fragmentation of the body is reminiscent of the Cubist style. In his sculptures, however, Erich Hauser succeeds in more than a mere transfer of these formal ideals into the sculptural; rather, his surface figures, supported by a spatial rhythm, appear as independent further developments. The neutral surface - the polished steel shows no traces of treatment - allows the viewer no distraction and confronts him directly with Hauser's artistic intention. At the same time, however, the interplay of light and shadow lends lightness to the massive steel plates and makes the center of the sculpture "4/92", formed from triangles, appear - without resorting to figural allusions - like a mineral structure that has grown.
