'Veeke' is as jagged a painting as its spiky name suggests. From a base colour of murky green grey emerge what appear like flat knives or spears, layered on top of one another, and streaking across the canvas from right to left like a dirty neon chevron. They seem to cast softer dove-grey shadows as they pass, creating intricate, impossible perspectives. Like many of Abts' paintings, 'Veeke' appears, at first, insolent and introspective, concerned only with itself.
