Since gaining a BA (Hons) Fine Art (First Class) degree at the University of Nottingham in 2013 Mandy Payne's star has been on a constant rise.
Her portrayals of twentieth century inner-city social housing are rendered with great empathy for the urban communities who called them home and with great respect for the architectural ambitions that created them but also ask us to question their success and where we go next in an age of ever more gentrification of our inner cities.
Her choices of surfaces including concrete, etched aluminium, discarded marble work surfaces, reclaimed floorboards and materials including spray paint and roofing sealant as well as more traditional oil paints bring the essence of the buildings portrayed to the work.
Mandy's work has been selected for the John Moores Painting Prize (2014, 2016, 2020/21), the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (each year from 2014 to 2019), the Threadneedle Prize (2013) and the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize (2019) and in 2017 she was noted as an artist to watch in the Observer/Guardian Rising Stars list.
Her work is held in several acclaimed collections including the University of Salford Art Collection, the Elizabeth Greenshield Foundation Collection, Montreal, the Ruskin Collection, Millennium Gallery, Sheffield, the Priseman Seabrook Collection, Essex, the New Light Art Collection, UK, the Yale Center for British Art, Connecticut, USA and the Devonshire Collection at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire.
