In his paintings, Istvan Betuker has the ability to convey some of his emotions and some atmospheres through control of his brush and through his expressiveness, which is closely bound to representation. We can see this in his intimate scenes of everyday life, where the anonymous subjects allow us to imagine and enjoy the moments we see before us. They are always normal subject taken from everyday activities, but they are observed with great affection, and indeed show us a sweeping vision of human vulnerability.
