Next to nothing
Connor, Steven (2008) Next to nothing. Tate etc. (12), pp. 82-93. ISSN 1743-8853.
In 1935 Gertrude Stein wrote that in a painting there should be "no air... no feeling of air". John Ruskin, writing several decades earlier, disagreed, saying that "everything that is needful, nourishing and delightful about the earth comes from its capacity to take up oxygen - to rust". As Steven Connor explains, air has become as much the subject of art, in the work of artists such as Yves Klein, Robert Barry, Paul McCarthy and Ann Veronica Janssens, as that which it surrounds.
