Jump and Glory

 

Jump & Glory is a suite of 19 woodcut prints about human stupidity and vanity, made between 1981 - 86. 

 

 

1981 after hearing a talk on the radio about "zero growth" in which the speaker felt that "we have gone too far in development", created Torsten Jurell the woodcut "Hope". That print was  intended to be just as a single kind of comment on "stupidity". The idea was born of a continuation, "Faith, Hope and Love" which came 1982. Then, the entire suite ended in 1986. The prints became a book Hoppets Triumf with lyrics to each image of the author Klas Östergren, Akelin & Hägglunds publishers 1986.
