Launch of Peter Dreher: Just Painting
published by Occasional Papers
6th November 2014
at Tenderbooks, 6 Cecil Court, London
"I do the paintings almost exclusively in my studio in St Margen.
It is the only place perfectly suited to the purpose. It is situated
over 3,000 feet above sea level, the air up there gives you the
feeling you get when you've drunk some sparkling wine, and I can
start painting straightaway. When I sit down and look at the glass,
it is like seeing an old friend. And then I'm happy and each time
it comes as a surprise, because I still think the same after forty
years: this glass is strangely unique."
