Franz Bucher's relief deals not only with the possibilities of wall sculpture, but also with those of painting. For on the one hand, the abstract work fulfills the basic condition of a bas-relief, and on the other hand, the square motif in a square frame shape is reminiscent of a picture within a picture or a framed representation of a picture - and thus touches on the painterly tradition. The minimalist modulation, one might almost say shading, of the sculpture plays into the painterly impression of a brown lacquered, iridescent colorfulness. The twofold formal readability also corresponds to the borderline area of the genre: on the one hand, Bucher mostly laid out his sculptures in the organic-vegetative area, which is echoed in the relief in a wave-like manner; on the other hand, he creates a geometric structure here that is oriented towards concrete art.
