Prosperity: Semiotics and Absurdity series (2005)

In the body of series, Prosperity: Semiotics and Absurdity, its "highest purpose is to serve no purpose" has a purpose – to create meaningless. But, human creates a meaning for any meaningless.

A process in this experimental body of works Prosperity began with its "highest purposeless," evolving from absurdity into a meaning. At end of the process, the theme unfolded itself into inspecting values and judgments of aesthetics in relation to prosperity.

As both traditional and digital mediums are equally valued, the techniques, processes and materials in these paintings are illusive. Traditional and digital painting are integrated in these images.

That is, all painting marks are non-digital by hands, with no single digital painting mark. Simultaneously, all paintings are completely digital, using only collage-painting and erase-painting techniques. As a result of this, the digital-traditional line has not only become blurred but also has become disappeared.

Human is quite creative at creating meanings out of emptiness.
