In Reddington's artist statement he writes, “The paintings produced for So Il Perspective: Reimagined Landscapes represent a specific time frame of experience within the southernmost region of Illinois. David Linneweh and my concept for this series of work was to revisit the area of So Il, a place in which we both went to graduate school together, lived together and shared together. This system of revisiting came by shared and individual experiences within the culture and landscape of southern Illinois. Reference to these places came in the form of old shared photographs, Google maps street view, memory and conversation.”
