This painting presents some form of maze or cage-like garden space, with the foreground foliage dwarfing the paired figures trapped within. They seem isolated, hardly interacting or communicating, and we are placed in the role of observers of a slowly evolving psychological experiment. Born in Lancashire in 1918 Mary Fogg studied at Preston and Manchester Art Schools before the Second World War and, during it, worked as a radiographer.
