In a catalogue forward James Fritton describes Organ's works as 'a mixture of objective observation, what is true to nature and a process of visual criticism that comes from personal experience and emotion'. In The Aftermath, Malta Harbour the artist captures Valetta after the bombings of the Second World War. The town in the background and people on the beach represent life's continuous cycle; the twisted and broken forms of the rubble in the foreground serve as a reminder of the cruelty of the war.
