Raimond Chaves (Bogotá, 1963) presents his exhibition The Abstract life of Billy Murcia, which includes his piece of art of the same name, at ProjecteSD. Chaves uses drawing as a tool to tackle a variety of topics and works alone or in collaboration with fellow artist Gilda Mantilla. In this, his latest exhibition, the tiny details and paradoxes that characterise our day-to-day lives at the beginning of the 21st century are his starting point. His methodology is unpredictable and he thinks nothing of combining the abstract with the figurative. His subjects move from the mundane through the sublime, to the impossible to define. Billy Murcia, the person the exhibition is named after, was a real person, the original drummer for American rock band the New York Dolls, though his inclusion here is not meant to allude to him in particular, rather to all of us, and none of us. We all embody a bit of him though none of us are entirely him.
