In 2013 Mandy Lane graduated from Carmarthen School of Art with a BA Hons in Fine Art Sculpture, and has subsequently completed her MA Contemporary Dialogues in Swansea College of Art with distinction. She is a sculpture lecturer at Carmarthen School of Art, a member of Sculpture Cymru and most recently a fellow in 56 Group Wales and a member of Iron Maidens Made in Wales (an all-women artist group that work in with cast iron).

Mandy Lane has exhibited at various locations across the UK including Wales, Manchester, Folkestone, London and Ireland, and has been selected for the 2016 SWA in the Mall Galleries, London. In 2017 her work was selected for the Swansea open in the Glynn Vivian. Also that year  she was selected as 1 of the 12 artist in residence with the Welsh Arts Review where she responded to her own research, and collaborated with Professor Bohata regarding one of Wales most interesting and queer women Amy Dillwyn. This collaboration awarded them highly commended in the Arts as Research competition. Mandy Lane has recently been working with the Richard Burton archives (the coal field collection) in Swansea University in relation to women’s Welsh mining history for a 6-month residency with ArcadeCardiff gallery. The show opened in January 2018 and was entitled ‘nid byd, byd heb wybodaeth.’

“Although there is much evidence that things are changing and that gender is becoming more fluid and equality is evident, many institutional prejudices and barriers to equality also remain as strong as ever”
