Vue explores the cross-cultural connections inherent in his Australian and Hmong heritage and generates a dialogue through the use of constructed symbols.
His creation of a symbolic hammer and nail represent the “Do It Yourself” (DIY) culture found in Australia and are re-contextualized adjacent to Hmong textile traditions.
