Denver-based photographer and art director Suzanne Heintz was fed up with people asking her when she was going to get married. From her mother’s direct plea, “Just pick somebody!” to others’ woeful sighs of pity, Heintz lived half her life wondering where she had gone wrong. After years of struggling to politely answer the question, she decided to procure the house, husband, and offspring everyone so desperately felt was the pathway to happiness. Purchasing a pair of second-hand mannequins, Heintz set about playing house to achieve the American Dream. From a Parisian holiday to Christmas cards of wildly escalating happiness, Life Once Removed is a sharp, witty critique on the archaic expectations of domestic bliss and fulfillment.
Eeek! Nothing makes me happier than scrolling through my tumblr and randomly seeing my great grandfathers artwork. <3
I don’t know if you tell the truth, but I want to believe you. I love Shinn’s work.
No real reason to lie about it, it doesn’t get me anything shiny. I just really enjoy my families legacy of art. Everette’s son, Davidson was an artist in his own right, who welded beautiful sculptures and furniture. My father Michael David, Everette’s grandson, was a very accomplished artist as well. Mainly painting and sketching, but dad also was quite good at sculpting. He was very proud of Everette and his artistic abilities and raised me to be as well. :)
