2013 July11 – 06 October06 ''Portas Abetas/Open doors'' (Curator: Claudia Giannetti). ''Portas Abertas/Open Doors'' is the result of an invitation to artists worldwide to present a work that reflected their vision of the dichotomy between the historical context of the space where it is presented and the current world, as a sign that art can open doors to dialogue, a foundation for building a fairer, more tolerant and inclusive society. Based on concepts of space-network, dialogue, decentralization, interculturality and inclusion, Portas Abertas embodies the philosophy and principles of this new venue for artistic and cultural expression as a contribution to a more cohesive and plural society. Centered on a concept of equality and on a clear reference to coexistence and dialogue between different forms of expression, until 6 October works by artists from 60 countries and 5 continents, will be on display, using exactly the same media and dimensions, in a universal discourse without frontiers.Largo Marquês de Marialva, Nº. 8 - 12,7000-809 Évora, Portugal http://www.fundacaoeugeniodealmeida.pt/forum/open-doors/905.htm

Some of artists and art professionals comments from around the world:
''It seems you have a great sense of form in general. The idea of using barcodes as a subject for your paintings gives the conceptual feeling about it, the feeling of art as a matter of intellect as well as aesthetics.That is what I think art should stand for.''Andrzej Rafalowicz,POLAND
''There are only so many things that can really be done that haven't been done in art that is original,and at the same time not keetch or momentary...You've caught a human element that is in our everyday life that we all take for granted and developed that concept into a very interesting art form that can be used to expand a whole new train of thought...''Raimond Rickevicius,CANADA
''I like your compositions..very 'musical'.''Cesar Veloso,PORTUGAL
''You have a unique subject and an equally unique style so identifiable.I am very impressed.''Seshardi Sreenivasan,INDIA
''I love your work, I think is a smart way to use common life object in a new and different context.''Aaron Inker(Nicholas Ferrara), Biella/Venice,ITALY
''I like your intelligent artwork,and I like it''.Dan Lavie,ISRAEL
''I like the barcode as a subject, something unnoticed in every day life.''Catriona Robertson,London,UK
The series ''COLOR CODES''
By painting the series ''COLOR CODES" I paint something between ancient mosaic and modern color code, something between abstract and concrete, something inspired by Mondrian and Ruothko.
The series ''PAINTED BARCODES'':
Barcodes are an important part of our daily life throughout the world. They are everywhere: on tickets, on products, on ID cards. I am trying that element, made by machines, convert into a poetical form, transforming it into a contemporary metaphor of everyday life, civilization, globalization etc., using it as a painting subject. Linear barcodes usually are white and black, or monochromatical. Yet, in my paintings barcodes and their details metamorphosize to polychromatical(only a few of them stay white and black), read not by a scanner, but by painter's eyes, using no computer program, only human brains; sent not to a screen, but to canvas with brush and oil.
The primary concern for me is visual qualities of the paintings and the ideas conveying to viewers as simply as possible rather than stressing on the new technique,style, or material that are used for it.
Thus, I am trying to enrich barcodes(printed by machines), to change them into paintings,saying that it is possible to find colors in daily routine.
In my videos I make something between poetry and painting, something between painting and video, something between old and new(from oil on canvas technique to digital graphics), something like a story told by images instead of the words.
The series ''THE STORAGE OF THE 21st CENTURY SIGNS'':
Ancient cave paintings inspired me to start painting that series. According to some theories, cave paintings were not just merely decorations of living areas and they may have been a way of communication with others.
As one of my goals is to paint a language, for me traffic and safety symbols as well as symbols found in shopping centres somehow relates to ancient cave paintings. They also are a certain way of communication and they tell a story of the 21st century humans in their visual images.
Since 2008 my works have being represented nationally and internationally under pseudonym Painter Coded, currently I am under pseudonym along with my real name as Painter Coded (Rūta Baužytė-Jarosz).
