About the object
Peter Dreher has been painting the same glass since 1974. It stands on the same table, always at the same distance from the wall. Nothing about the external conditions has changed. With a few exceptions, all of the paintings painted up to now have been made in his studio in St. Märgen in the Black Forest. Each painting can be viewed individually yet is simultaneously part of the whole series. However, this consistent repetition of motif is less to do with the depicted motif than with questions of painting: painting as a postulate for the quintessence of itself - the glass itself is merely the pretext for this.
