John McKie

I live on the England/Scotland border, pretty out of the way of things. I started making pictures at the end of 2011 just for fun. I just kind of make it up as I go along. I suppose I mainly think about corruption, futility, media brainwashing, advertising, celebrity, injustice, death, politics, science, spirituality, religion etc. and how fantastic and capable we are as a species but how little we do really, me included. Yes it really is Comedy Central in my head (actually most of the time, it really is. There's often hilarity in dire stuff). On the other hand the universe is unfolding exactly as it should, as it says in The Desiderata, and is perfect. 
I read that Vincent van Gogh said the World was perfect, and that was just before he shot himself. So the story went. Maybe that's not true but I still believe him whether he said it or not. Since starting my pictures have sold in quite large numbers which wasn't my initial intention, but I'm not complaining.
