Spitfire Redux

Inspired by technical drawings, origami, decal sheets, and the obsessive aspects of model-making, Julien Masson and Ian Kirkpatrick reinterpret a familiar British Icon, the Spitfire airplane.  Interested by the ways the Spitfire has been reproduced for popular consumption in 2 and 3D forms (i.e. as plastic models, paper planes, exploded mechanical diagrams, etc.), these two Southampton-based artists fully dismantle the subject’s visual components and ‘repackage’ them into alternate visual structures that are faithful to the original subject, while being completely new forms in their own right.
