Description A tribute to Peter Sellers. One of his finest moments acting came in the movie, Being There. Peter Sellers as Chance the Gardner reveals a few truths that stand at the center as well as quite outside the box of our daily lives. All too obvious and yet unique. Contradictions co-existing in perfect harmony. Sellers is superb, without ever betraying the grayness of his existence. What a remarkable piece of acting. Moving and powerful at the end of a legendary career. See it, if you havent.
I.M. Spadecaller, Tampa Bay Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement Matthew Schwartz (AKA Spadecaller) is a grateful survivor who conveys his convictions and serenity through visual art, poetry, and video.
As a child, he was trained in traditional oil techniques and later attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71). During the 70's up until the late 80's he exhibited acrylic and oils in New York, and presently resides on the west coast of Florida.
Since the advent of image editing software, he has turned more to creative digital hand painted images and photos striving to fuse these into an art form worthy of the distinction traditional painters deserve.
