Mandy Lane graduated from Carmarthen School of Art with a 2-1 BA Hons in Fine Art Sculpture, and has 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, a fellow in 56 Group and most recently forms part of the all-woman group Iron maidens made in Wales.
Mandy Lane has exhibited at various locations including Wales, Manchester, Folkestone, London and Ireland, and was selected for the 2016 SWA in the Mall Galleries, London.
Her current work explores the complex inter-relationships between the female gender and the world; examining female-ness and femininity as subjected by the male gaze in both a wider-world context, and within the domestic sphere. This lens exposes the cultural conditioning and socially ingrained objectification of females from birth, inside and out of a family unit.
For the Wales Arts Review residency Mandy will be researching and responding to one of Wales most interesting woman Amy Dillwyn.
