Artwork Description:

This intaglio and aquatint etching--EDITION II of IV, PRINT NUMBER 1 of 5--was inspired by an engraving by Philips Galle who was born in Haarlem in the Netherlands. DiFalco employed a zinc plate that was etched in three Nitric acid bathsmoreover, the plate measured six inches high by nine inches wide, or 15.240 cmx22.860 cm. The print size is eleven inches wide by fifteen inches high, or 27.940 cm x 38.100 cm, and the frame in which it ships measures about twelve inches wide by sixteen inches high, OR 30.480 cm x 40.640 cm. Media included a blend of colored, oil base inks--Charbonnel Brand, from Paris, heavy RivesBFK white printmaking paper from France, and a Thai mulberry bark paper that was infused with Japanese kozo threads and hand-treated with home-made methyl cellulose. A description of the Chine colle process is included at the end of this text. The representational etching depicts the Goddess Diana--probably from Ephesus, which is currently in Turkey, south of Izmi. She has six breasts and her body’s bottom section is composed of a plinth resplendent with numerous animal heads. She holds a bird in one hand and a torch in the other, which represent the cosmic elements of air and fire. Fruit and a water-filled urn, both at her feet, symbolize the elements of earth and water. The Galle engraving is part of the collection at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdamto refer to this print, use the URL http hdl. handle. net 10934 RM0001.

DIANA was considered the Maiden, Mother, and Crone in the guise of her personae. Her dress is composed of animals, and her breasts were symbols of fertility, as represented by bullstesticles... for fertility.⁠This DiFalco etching was hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as part of the Fleisher Art School Open Studio In Printmaking.

An Explanation of the Chine Colle ProcessMethylcellulose powder is reconstituted with spring water and then applied to mulberry bark paper from Thailand, Brand Unryu. The treated paper is then allowed to dry overnight, and I cut it exactly to fit the plate areas where I want certain color areas to exist in the print. I create the stencils from heavy-duty acetate and then trace the number of pieces needed to place on the inked and wiped etching plate. The printing paper is then placed over the zinc plate, which is now on the press bed,and then covered with blankets. The manual printing process continues, and I turn the operating wheel that moves the bed. Next I remove the blankets and lift the paperthe printed etchingwith the cut mulberry bark papers now a permanent part of the etching. A multi-colored image on paper results. This difficult process is time consuming but well worth it. The work was hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
