THE GUITARS - CHRIS JEHLY
Born in Santa Rosa, Ca. Attended Sonoma State University with a BA in Intaglio Print Making.
I grew up being fascinated by insects, arachnids,arthropods, reptiles, and amphibians; which has greatly influenced the work that I produce. Insects and land mass, to me, represent nature's infinite network of " 1's and 0's; they are the micro-relationships that uphold an ancient order, which far exceeds human exhistance .
Having collected and raised various kinds of mantids, phasmids and arthropods, I've developed a keen interested in the "forensic". Through the process, I've become obsessed with minuet detail, and the beauty of a cryptic pallet.
