Twin Sons of Different Mothers

An Exhibition of Paintings by Ida Bagus Indra and John O'Sullivan at Gaya Fusion in Ubud, Bali October 6 – 30, 2009.


The concept of creating a joint exhibition entitled "Twin Sons of Different Mothers" evolved over time between two very different artists hailing from opposite sides of the globe, but now happily residing on a single island – Bali.

Two souls connected for over six years this time around; attracted in a desire to express and create a mixed medium offering their past, present and future.

In Balinese terms: A sincere and divine offering of Sekala (the tangible) and Niskala (intangible).

One soul from Bali of the Brahman caste and the other a Celtic spirit traveling the world in search of hiding undiscovered relatives; the ultimate reconnection of souls in unison.

The spirit of the exhibition at Gaya Fusion October 6-30, 2009, is about opposites and virtual sameness. The circle of co-existence and potential. The combination and blending of all the senses is heavily implied to provoke; not in the negative or positive sense, but in a desire for upward expression of possibilities; both in the soul of the artists and the heart of the viewer.

From the arrival at the exhibition, greeted by more than 35 statues depicting different earth forms, then on to the "soul sound bite" of poetry banners in the main gallery. A choice of runways is offered to the viewers for access. The individual works of the artists hang precariously at different angles from the ceiling defining a world of separated and alternative potential; an upside down world . . . literally.

The exhibition continues to unfold with the paneled wall; each piece sensitively collaborative in nature allowing space for Taksu to blossom generously and selflessly. A reunion of soul source regardless of the medium used.

Installation pieces dispersed throughout the space infer chaos in an interactive and almost humorous manner.

The use of poetry and voice combined with the art insightfully complements and distracts with quizzical prodding.

You are welcomed into the joyful and shared worlds of Ida Bagus Indra and John O’Sullivam . . .

. . .Two sons of different mothers.
