Images created by the artist Mick Abbott, inspired by the divine and the everyday.

Mick Abbott's large-scale drawings and paintings combine architectural and decorative features with religious themes and contemporary portraits.

He says:

"I take elements of spiritually inspired aspects of medieval culture and place them alongside people and incidents from our daily lives, gently provoking comparisons and asking the question what might have been the changes across the centuries? ... Religious art is still a driving force and inspiration for me. I am particularly interested in the messages contained in medieval stained glass and misericords. What might seem at first to be a whimsical wood or stone carving or  decorative piece of glass , might give us an instant insight and connection.   A timeless sentiment, sometimes irreverent but always human." 

Mick taught art for ten years in Peterborough, first at the County School on Lincoln Road and then at Ken Stimson School in Werrington.
