Artwork Description:

This triple zinc-plate etching, entitled “THIRTEENTH STREET IS A JUNGLE”, was laid out on the printing press in a vertical format. This etching is from the FIRST of FOUR EDITIONS, and the editions are limited to only four etchings each. Each of the four editions is executed in a different ink and paper color combination and, this edition is printed with dark black ink from Paris Charbonnel brand on RivesBFK white paper, which is also from France. The thrust of this urban cityscape balances both the geometry of form and shading of white to black. The artist employed the studio techniques of intaglio and aquatint. The three zinc plates were etched in three individual baths of Nitric acid. The individual plate sizes are six inches wide by four inches high, which makes the image size about 12.5 inches high by 6 inches wide. The print paper size is about 18 inches high by eleven inches wide. The work includes an archival mat and wood frame with paper backing. All editions were hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper located at 705 Christian Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania within Fleisher Art’s Open Studio In Printmaking. Fleisher is associated with the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Di Falco used an industrial floor press, manufactured in New York City at the Charles Brand Company. The frame size is about 20 inches high by sixteen inches wide. This intriguing etching was based on five original drawings, executed in 2020, by the artist. Di Falco used one of his black and white photographs as a starting point and shot this 1980 street scene for his first solo show of photographs. The theme for his show—entitled CRAMPED: PHOTOS BY JERRY DI FALCO at Giovanni’s Room Bookstore in Philadelphia—was decidedly urban. This specific scene was taken at one of Philadelphia’s more notorious intersections, 13th and Locust Streets, which lies in the center of the Red Light District and “gayborhood”. The work features some of the off-color bars of this district, including The Bag of Nails. The performance art stripper, Miss Honeysuckle Divine, made this establishment famous with her risqué act. 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 song by the Philadelphia punk band, HEADCHEESE, called, “Thirteenth Street is a Jungle”. . . it’s a jungle. . . where I live.
