About Su

I am Suicide Artist. I "detonate" art, not bombs. I paint the bloody flux of daily events to respond to anger, fear, nihilism, desperation, and absurdity. Suicide Art confronts murder and mayhem through ARTnotBOMBS. I make art by destroying art in an endless cycle of creation and destruction.


"Here, take my head instead......"

Margaret Hassan, the director of CARE International in Iraq, was kidnapped last week in Baghdad. A native of Ireland, Hassan is married to an Iraqi and has lived in the country for 30 years where she works to better the lives of ordinary Iraqis. As soon as the news broke, Suicide Artist contacted Tony Blair and begged him to comply with the demands of the kidnappers. “Send the soldiers home,” she pleaded. “Save their lives and save Margaret. Get your people out of this bloody mess. Face it, Tony, the only thing Bush is good at is lying.”

This morning as Suicide Artist stood in her kitchen making sandwiches for her children to take to school, she received the message that the British Prime Minister was indisposed to her request. She tearfully kissed her children and told them to leave the room. She raised the bread knife to her throat and began to cut. A neighbor heard her scream, “Here, take this Tony Blair, take this George Bush, take this you dirty terrorists, take my head instead and free Margaret Hussan!”
