Artwork Description:

Entitled, “THIRTEENTH STREET IS A JUNGLE”, this triptych like design employed three, zinc etching plates all laid out on the printing press bed in a vertical-format. This print is from the THIRD EDITION of FOUR, with each intimate edition limited to only four etchings. Each editions is executed with a different ink blend and paper color combinationand, this edition—printed on STONEHENGE black paperUS —uses a created blend of six ink colors, all manufactured in ParisCharbonnel brand. The influences in this urban scene balances geometry, form, and the shading of light with shadow. The printmaker employed the studio techniques of intaglio and aquatintand, all plates were etched in three separate baths of Nitric acid. Each individual plate size is six inches wide by four inches highand, this makes the image size about 12.5 inches high by 6 inches wide. The printetching papersize is about 18 inches high by eleven inches wide. The frame size measures twenty inches high by sixteen inches wide. The work includes an archival mat and wood frame with a kraft paper glued to the frame’s back. The frame is also wired with screw eyes and ready to hang. 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 his original black and white photograph as a mock-up for these drawings. The photo—shot and developed for his first solo show of urban-centric photographs. This Philadelphia exhibition, entitled CRAMPED—PHOTOS BY JERRY DI FALCO, was hosted by Giovanni’s Room Bookstore in 1979. This specific scene depicts an intersection at 13th and Locust Streets, one of Philadelphia’s notorious cross walks in the center of the Red Light District. The work highlights some of the off-color bars of this neighborhood, including The Bag of Nails. The performance art stripper, Miss Honeysuckle Divine, made this establishment famous with her risqué act in which she constructed a sandwich and fed it from the stage to audience members... with her genitalia muscles. The title of Di Falco’s work is from a 1980 song by Philadelphia’s punk band, HEADCHEESE, called, “Thirteenth Street is a Jungle”... it’s a jungle... where I live.
