INTERNATIONAL JURIED GROUP EXHIBITIONS
2013 ''PORTAS ABERTAS/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

Below are some of the comments from art professionals about Painter Coded(Ruta Bauzyte-Jarosz)'s paintings
''For anyone familiar with the history of my own paintings as well as anyone who happens to love some of the great abstract expressionists (such as: Rothko, Barnett Newman, and others) along with conceptual art; you will love the work of artist Painter Coded(Ruta Bauzyte-Jarosz)!''Kristin Rafferty, FRANCE/USA
''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 Barnett Newman and Mark Rothko.
The series ''PAINTED BARCODES''
In my paintings black nad white 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.
Thus, I am trying to enrich barcodes (printed by machines), to change them into paintings, trying to find colors in daily life.
The series ''THE STORAGE OF THE 21st CENTURY SIGNS''
''Sign#19'' from the series ''The Storage of the 21st century Signs'', oil on canvas, 63x15.7 inches/160x40cm ©Painter Coded (Ruta Bauzyte-Jarosz)
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 relate 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.
Excerpt from ''Video Fairy Tale Without An End SHOES'' 1min52sec
To watch video please click on https://vimeo.com/60775808
By making video essays, video haiku and video fairy tales without an end I make something between poetry and painting, something between painting and video, something between old and new (from oil on canvas to digital graphics), something like a story told by images instead of the words, something written on the screen instead of paper. Above is one of them.
