Artist Statement

Colleen Woolpert’s current project, Echo Location, stems from her exploration of the former Lee Paper Company mill with her twin sister, Rani Young, at the Prairie Ronde Artist Residency in the summer of 2022. With her studio membership at the KBAC, Colleen created several new works to conceptually expand her project as well as her technical skills— layered handmade paper sheets, a related video, and a book whose structure is based on the first stereoscope (1838) and incorporates her 3D photographs of the mill, historic images, letterpress, and actual sheets of Lee paper produced before the mill’s closing.
