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 ''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.
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).
