The Fourth Person Singular
2012
oil on canvas

The series The Fourth Person Singular contains oil paintings measuring 120 cm x 100 cm and consists of text extracts from hip hop lyrics. Recurrent in all the paintings is a rhetorical reasoning about the ego and the artistic alter ego. The extracts are painted in black on white canvas; the font is Times New Roman. The title is taken from the poem "To the Oracle at Delphi" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
