‘Strangers’ encompasses the whole space at the foundation, invites us all into the psyche of the artist. Kevin is a self-taught artist whose haunting paintings explore themes of alienation within crowds of people living their daily life. Referencing photographs and film stills, Specht’s works are autobiographical and relate to his feelings from the years when he was commuting back and forth from work.

Kevin’s practice revolves around the fundamental question that the artist keeps asking himself: why do we live the life we live?

The recurring faceless figures that can be found across his paintings attest to the felt anonymity of the system we are all part of.

Specht takes inspiration from a range of artists such as Jules de Balincourt, Peter Doig, and Egon Schiele.
