About Jeffrey Strayer

My philosophical work has largely concerned identifying what is minimally required of making and apprehending works of art. This work is an investigation of the conceptual underpinnings of all art. More particularly, it is an examination of what would be required of, and would therefore limit, any work that would be one of the more Abstract possible. (It turns out that there is more than one limit of Abstraction.) My creative work in art implicitly reflects, as it utilizes, what is essential to the production and recognition of entities as works of art. This includes any artwork of a kind that, in being located at a point beyond which it is impossible to go, reflects in its identity things that situate it at the point of Abstraction at which it resides.
