In Sten Eklund's art, humans are absent. Instead, Eklund's compositions contain fragments of buildings, machines and objects. The geometrically constructed works become traces of human production, where a structured order prevails in the absence of human chaos.
Sten Eklund's art is idea-based and analytical, based on philosophical, moral and universal human issues. From the beginning of Eklund's career, critics praised his art and considered him ahead of his time.
