Artwork Description:

Entitled, “THIRTEENTH STREET IS A JUNGLE”, this unique DiFalco etching displays a triptych like design due to the employment of three zinc etching plates, all positioned on the printing press bed in a vertical format. This print is from the FINAL EDITION of FOUR, and each edition is limited to an intimate number of four original etchings. In addition, the editions were all printed by hand with a different combination of ink and paper colors. This 4th edition was printed on RivesBFK white paper with three ink colors, all manufactured in France. The visual stimulus within this urban landscape circa 1979 balances geometric form with a verticality that propels the viewer directly into the scene. DiFalco employed the studio techniques of intaglio and aquatint. All plates were etched in three separate baths of Nitric acid. Each individual plate sizeafter filingmeasures about six inches wide by four inches high, which makes the image size about 12.5 inches high by 6 inches wide. The etching paper was hand torn to a size of about 18 inches high by 11 inches wide. The frame measures 20 inches high by 16 inches wide50.800cm x 40.640cm . The price includes an archival mat and frame with glassthe frame is sealed in the back with a layer of glued craft paper. The frame is also wired between screw eyes and ships to the collector ready for hanging. All editions are hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paperlocated at 705 Christian Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvaniawithin Fleisher Art’s Open Studio In Printmaking. Fleisher is associated with the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Di Falco used a large, floor-model industrial printing press, manufactured in New York City by the Charles Brand Company. This narrative of this captivating work on paper was based on five original drawings, all executed in 2020 by the artist. Di Falco used one ofhis original black and white photograph as a mockup for these drawings. This photo was initially shot and developed for his first solo exhibition of urban-centric photographs, entitled CRAMPEDPHOTOS BY JERRY DI FALCO, which was hosted by Giovannis Room Bookstore in 1979. This specific scene depicts the Philadelphia intersection of 13th and Locust Streets, one of Philadelphia’s notorious cross walks in the midst of the Red Light District. The work highlights some of the off color bars within this neighborhood, including The Bag of Nails. It was in this nightclub that Miss Honeysuckle Divine crossed performance art with striptease in her risqué act. She shocked audiences by constructing a salami sandwich with her genitalia muscles before feeding it from the stage to audience members... from between her legs. The title is derived from a song called, “Thirteenth Street is a Jungle”, sung by the Philadelphia punk band, HEADCHEESE.13th Street is a jungle, it’s a jungle... it’s a jungle... a jungle where I live.
