Repurpose by Colby Deal

September 1, 2023

(713) 227-4772


Repurpose by Colby Deal is the inward practice and outward act of repurposing materials and experiences that carry personal resonance. This collection is a mirror to his own life’s journey of self-reconstruction and preservation through the collaging of consciously safeguarded materials and images, seeing in them not only their inherent value but also his own life’s potential for rebirth.
It’s through this practice of artistic and personal repurposing that Colby communicates the connections that embody the importance of family, neighborhood, and community. His respect goes beyond any geographical borders, encompassing communities he encounters through his travels.

Just as he contextualizes these materials in his artwork, Colby also continuously reshapes and redefines his personal journey, emphasizing the shared experiences and values that bind us all together.

This exhibition mirrors his personal pilgrimage toward healing and inner peace. It marks a shift from a mindset concentrated on future endeavors to a profound understanding of his own motivations and the intrinsic meaning of being content but not complacent in his work and in his life.
