One of four prints based on some 1930s Tai Chi photos I found online that captured my fancy. The evocative postures led me to imagine each of the characters interacting with elemental forces in some way.

This pose made me think of someone pushing against something really immovable, like trying to move a mountain. So I thought of rocks. And then, as I began to sketch, they became floating rocks. As the print evolved, I wanted to see the rocks look both heavy and light, so I made them transparent.
