You've been to a concert before where the music is great, the crowd is on, and yet it's who you are with that makes the memory. In Picasso's "Le Femme d'Alger (version "O"), Bryce sees that same appeal. Everything about Picasso's piece suggests action happening around the woman, but all eyes are on her. She's the show.

A final tip of the hat to Henri Matisse, whose death seems to have (at least on some level) prompted Picasso to paint so many versions of Delacroix's (Matisse's favorite) original, "Femmes d'Alger dans leur Appartement." Matisse was the master/creator of the cutout concept, and Bryce has suggested as much by making the people in the background mere references within shadow; showing shape, but leaving much to figure out on the viewer's own.
