The solo show Fragile comprises of new and old artworks alike, all representing Istvan Betuker’s continuous survey of the inner frailness of human existence; also, the exhibition brings into discussion the fragility of the painting as means of expression in itself, explored throughout different technical aspects and approaches of the medium.

Thus, Fragile solo show finally represents an aesthetical exploratory study regarding interiority as seen from a self-perspective as well as from the other I point of view; the paintings unveil a special hidden feeling of Istvan Betuker with regard to either himself or the others, highlighted by a common subject and an existentialist theme and, also a specific preciousness given by the sophisticated artistic manner and the refined execution.
