The imagery in this etching originated with a 2012 photograph by the artist taken at England’s Covington Cathedral. It shows a relief sculpture on the building by Jacob Epstein, the same sculptor who carved Oscar Wilde’s gravestone in Paris, as well as the free standing bronze piece entitled, SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS, permanently installed at The Philadelphia Museum of Art in Pennsylvania, USA. This original etching, entitled EPSTEIN S ANGEL, was executed on a zinc plate by and manually printed by Di Falco on a Charles Brand flatbed press at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. The artist incorporated the techniques of intaglio, aquatint, drypoint and Chine colle. His media included oil base etching ink, RivesBFK white paper, and mulberry bark paper from Thailand that was infused with Kozo fibers and treated with homemade methylcellulose. Five individual nitric acid baths and plate workings were required. This is the best of five prints in the FIRST of FOUR Editions.
