She sees her work as a witness of the times, reflecting contemporary events through a personal lens. The artist believes that the desperate struggle to merely exist is reflected in the behaviour and origins of a people. Her works expresses the anguish of the desperate and dispossessed, trampled and abandoned. The social, environmental, and cultural neglect and exploitation that leave only mute echoes.
Thuy emphasizes the use of traditional materials such as silk and lacquer as the focal point, to seek new expressive possibilities for contemporary storytelling. Through the manipulation of space, interacting with tradition and modernity, to create installations that reflect modern society.
