About Sarah Cawkwell
The following lines by Virginia Woolf convey some of the artist's feelings about her work:
'It is probable that both in life and art the values of a woman are not the values of a man. Thus ... she will find that she is perpetually wishing to alter the established values - to make serious what appears insignificant to a man, and trivial what is to him important. And for that, of course, she will be criticised; for the critic of the opposite sex will be genuinely puzzled and surprised by an attempt to alter the current scale of values, and will see in it not merely a difference of view, but a view that is weak, or trivial, or sentimental, because it differs from his own.'
An exhibition of Sarah Cawkwell's work was held at New Hall in 1995.
