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. Bryce uses the key female figure in Picasso's "Le Femme d'Alger (version 'O')" as the centerpiece.
Picasso’s “Le Femme d’Alger” series was inspired by Eugene Delacroix's, "Femmes d'Alger dans leur Appartement." These were Henri Matisse’s favorites, and Matisse’s death was possibly the impetus for Picasso to do the series. Bryce has suggested as much by making the people in the background mere references within shadow; an homage to Matisse, the master/creator of the cutout concept. At this concert, all eyes are on her. She’s the show.
