Vexillum explores the relationship between eastern versus western aesthetic values. Multicoloured, puzzling paintings are composed of positive and negative spaces derived from various exotic styles throughout art history, including advertising, anime, and Memphis Design. These components are remixed and recomposed to represent mixed ethnicity, sexual identity and boundaries.

Similar to international flags, these paintings are also used for advertising, decorative, or symbolic purposes. Flags are patriotic symbols with widely varied interpretations, often associated with military connotations because of their ongoing original premise. They have evolved into a concise communication tool for identification in environments where language barriers are particularly challenging.

The word vexillum is derivative of the Latin word, ​velum​, meaning "a sail, curtain, or veil,” ​vexilla literally translating to "little sails."
