John Newdigate grew up in Cape Town and has worked as a professional artist and ceramist since 1991. ‘Flying Into The Wind’ is a body of masterfully painted porcelain vessels that are a lively exploration of colour and pattern inspired by his environment. Recurring themes in his work include the interplay of light and water; atmospheric renderings of the man-made and natural landscape near his home in Swellendam at the foot of Langeberg mountains; as well as imaginatively exuberant plant, bird and animal motifs that are often a wry commentary on human interactions with the natural world. His work is represented in important South African public collections and private collections around the world.
