Vue's practice harnesses the frictions and tensions of cultural difference from his transcultural Hmong Australian experience to develop works that offer more inclusive, diverse and hybrid tropes of belonging within cultural and national identities. These works often employ humour and satire to blur the lines and definitions that have been developed by processes of Othering. A key focus in Vue's work is also how individual and collective memories, together with the records and artefacts of official history can be repurposed to offer more compelling retellings of recent Hmong experiences of war and migration, which have been largely ignored, overlooked, and forgotten. Additionally, Vue's practice seeks to create transcultural spaces for viewing, art-making and social interaction by diverse audiences within and outside of traditional art exhibiting spaces.
