The Suicide Series began as a bit of a joke ( actually to ridicule a critic), proposing a rather large and very dangerous public sculpture.  The bluff was called and the first maquette resulted.  This became the most popular series of John's work, but the darker things got, the greater the necessity to abandon this direction of work.
