Alice Sfintesco often renders females figures as silhouettes that she then fills with chromatic washes, oddly stylized anatomical parts or clown-like visages. Her "Fall to Fly" series depicts her figures tossed about and helpless, trying to right themselves like a cat and hopefully land feet first. In the context of "Overlord" we have to ask what force has set these females in motion and how will things resolve? We know that this tension or struggle is complex despite possibly being an uneven battle between forces and we pray for the gift of nine lives in order to explore multiple options.
