Artist Sebastian Horsley and death
Artists think and feel differently. I do not know if it is from their spirit, mind, desires, physical body, ... but they do. They are different.
Sebastian Horsley killed himself. His work was in some ways of thinking a journal of a very long painful suicide. Included amongst his work of self expression was his desire and indeed decision to be crucified to experience the moment.
So many artists also have killed themselves. Some as the logical end to a life of depression and sorrow. Others, seemingly, as a punctuation mark to their work. The artist mind and spirit, to reflect and create is different than other humans. But I am not decided as to whether I believe their desire to and likelihood of use of suicide is more likely than any other kind of human.
We all have our own baggage and issues to deal with. I am not saying anything about should do, or not do. This is simply a reflection.
