Fuelled by a passion for ink and paper, and intrigued by the rich visual languages of Chinese painting and Chinese calligraphy, Living Water: Journeying in inks, is Ella Whateley’s response to immersion in Taiwanese culture during her residency at National Taiwan University of Arts. Dr. Whateley gained her doctorate in practice-led research, Painting, at the School of Art and Design, Australian National University, where she is currently a Visiting Fellow.
由於對墨水和紙張的熱愛，並深受中國繪畫和書法所呈現的豐富視覺語言的吸引，韋恩典博士的“活水”個展是她於國立臺灣藝術大學駐村期間全力探索台灣文化的成果，韋恩典博士於澳洲國立大學取得繪畫實務研究的博士學位，目前擔任該校的訪問學人。This exhibition is generously supported by the Ministry of Education, Republic of China (Taiwan).
