In her latest works, the British artist Fiona Banner presents her own eccentric version of drawing from life. These works involve a lot of language, as might be expected from someone known for written, billboard-sized blow-by-blow accounts of the action in movies like ‘‘Lawrence of Arabia,’’ ‘‘Top Gun’’ and ‘‘Don’t look back”.

Banner’s new work simply gives us objects instead of words; the objects evoke a visceral and physical response through their lines and form. Fighter planes, like many modern weapons, are fetishized; in military magazines there is normally it centerfold image of a jet, a feature which echoes the layout of pornography publications.
