Artist Bruce Thurman brings a witty dichotomy to a familiar ideal in Model Housewife, a mixed-media creation with a dancer whose image was borrowed from a vintage New Orleans calendar and yellow kitchen gloves, $1,800, from Lyon & Lyon Fine Art (819 Royal St., 588-9985).
Conceived by artist R.R. Lyon as a companion to its masculine counterpart Le Homme Tranquille, this piece — one of five panels that makes up La Femme Tranquille — breathes light through layers of acrylic that bring depth to the paint's warm tones; the artist says the rectangular cut out "made this one seem more feminine," $3,000, from Lyon & Lyon Fine Art (819 Royal St., 588-9985).
Artist David Harouni has amassed quite a following for his pieces, many of them based on his own image. Canvases of rich colors hang alongside brooding bronzes like this one, $2,500, in his eponymous Harouni Gallery (900 Royal St., 299-8900).
