This tow-plate (zinc) etching comes with a frame and archival mat. The SAATCHI price includes all handling costs, shipment supplies, framing, and regular, domestic (US) mailing costs to the collector. This "diptych/etching" is executed on two zinc plates and printed as one work on paper. The overall image measures 18 cm high by 27 cm wide (or 7 inches high by 10.5 inches wide) Each plate within the image measures 7 inches high x 5 inches wide. The print (paper) measures fifteen inches high (38.1cm) by eighteen inches (45.7cm) wide; My media consists of blended oil-based etching inks (red and violet, Charbonnel brand form France) on French RivesBFK Cream paper for this edition.
Techniques included intaglio, drypoint and aquatint hand-done with powdered resin. Over 400 individual lines were drawn onto the hard-ground before the plates were immersed in nitric acid for the etch process. I use my own particular technique of "bathing" to achieve the various effects found in this work. It's a combination of Neo-geo and abstraction balanced with color-field illusion. Both hard and soft grounds were used on the zinc plates; seven acid baths were required.
THIS PRICE INCLUDES: THE MATTED ETCHING IN AN ARCHIVAL MAT; A FRAME (12 inch x 16 inch, Type – Glass & Wood Edge / Semi-Ornate Style, Color - Gold); ALL HANDLING COSTS; SHIPMENT COSTS; CARDBOARD SHIPMENT CARTON; BUBBLE WRAP & OTHER PACKING MATERIALS; AND, A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY.

Editions II and III will not be executed until after The Full Moon of September in 2019. This is relates to metaphysics, The Sumerian Calendar, and the Pyramids of Giza. This separation of print times is a DIFALCO trademark in etching and also relates to the magnetic rising of Atlantis. Mt. Fuji on Japan will give the world an amazing discovery around the Full Moon of September 2019.
