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.

The way the figure is leaning down and the sort of gentle touch he's delivering made me think he might be touching fire. The circular forms are the types of shapes that are seen in pictures from bubble-chamber experiments, when atoms are split and subnuclear particles collide. He's playing with fire.
