Melissa Ayr releases “Buttergirl” a contemporary 3D painting on a mannequin torso. Obsession with the perfect butt is embodied by the youthful structure used to sell the next hot product. Buttergirl originally comes out of a Sears display from a store that was closed down in 2011. Sears Roebuck and Co. has been a staple of the American dream and is fading, as is, the sticks of home sweet home. Consumerism has changed and the colorful faceless girl of America remains beautiful despite her flaws.
Buttergirl will be featured during the month of March and will be showcased at a Gala Champagne Reception on Thursday, MARCH 8, 2012. 6:00-8:00 pm in Chelsea. 511 West 25th Street #406, New York, NY 10001.
