George Awde

Recent Yale graduate George Awde's work lyrically explores issues of family, culture and identity. His statement, albeit brief, communicates some essential ideas about familial life:

"Conceptions of home and family play an important role in my work. The family one is born into – and the family one creates. Notions of home are foundational – but they are also mythic and imaginative."
