Peter Dreher

MK Gallery

20 September – 24 November 2013

The German painter's work is described as 'contemplative, diaristic and obsessive'.

Peter Dreher has produced a painting of the same, empty glass every day for the last 40 years.

The series, Every Day is a Good Day, is based on a Zen-Buddhist philosophy that suggests everything is of equal importance and there are now over 5,000 pieces in the collection.

MK Gallery presents 150 examples, ranging from the 1970s to the present day as well as related engravings, watercolours and drawings.

Also on display is a selection of Dreher's still lifes, which includes paintings of flowers, foliage, vegetables and skulls, as well as detailed pencil drawings of an aubergine.

Meanwhile the Cube Gallery will feature a series of his architectural scenes, each of which was painted in a single day.
