Early on, Erik Jørgensen concentrated on the concrete-abstract design language, characterized by geometric shapes whose angles and circles appear with a tightness that contrasts with the color scheme, which is often dominated by ocher and pink hues, but often refracted by stronger primary colors. In addition to paintings, serigraphics and reliefs in wood, EJ has also made smaller stone sculptures and here used a more naturalistic, albeit simplified, form of expression. In 1962, he co-founded the Artists Group "Pro".
