Eiríkur has mostly created figurative paintings but also book-art and used books in his work. He has among other things, strived to elevate old workmanship and given it a new meaning in the form of sculpture-book-art.

About his book-art exhibition Bækr voru Eiríkur comments: „I wanted to give the works an ancient look and  dignify the volatile craftsmanship, that has been used through the centuries, and build it a temple. The book-towers stand naked and the mystery of the workmanship is reveiled – for all to see“.
