The Organic/Vortex series by John Gamboa 

The Spirit of the Work: This series of paintings represents years of developing not only a personal style, but a new technique for creating a sustainable series of exciting paintings.  I use the term “Organic” for any of my images that neither represent nor are abstracted from some real subject, but are entire compositions that grow spontaneously and innocently of themselves.  The term “Vortex” refers specifically to my organic pieces created by cutting spiral patterns into thick oil paint.
