Paul Petro Contemporary Art is pleased to present Weather Girl, an installation of drawing and galvanized steel sculpture from 1996 by Toronto artist Peter Bowyer, and Between a Fifth of a Second and 24 Hours, an exhibition of paintings in oil on acrylic glass from 1998 by Finnish artist Nina Roos.

Since the 1980s Peter Bowyer has produced installations combining drawing and sculpture, large scale works realized in public sites, simulated furniture and more recently animated film. In these numerous works he has re-contextualized aspects of the everyday world, borrowing from the spatial configurations and furnishings of food courts, shopping malls, subway platforms and departure lobbies. He has had solo exhibitions at The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (2006), The Art Gallery of York University (2003), The Toronto Sculpture Garden (2000), The Power Plant, Toronto (1995), Cold City Gallery (1999, 1996, 1992,1991,1989, 1987) and elsewhere.
