Selection of texts written by art critics of exhibitions made by ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES of Geometric Art: Pictorial, Sculpture and DIGITAL Geometry that she started in 1991 with COMBINABLES and TRAZADO ESPACIAL CONTINUO  formulating continuous mathematics and geometry for hers works. Previously, she worked 25 years (1965-1990) in landscape painting, geometric architecture compositions and in the two paintings that ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES made of the ARIADNE the marble sculpture (1986-88) in the MUSEUM of PRADO, MADRID.

02/06/15.- ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, (Elche 1949) has made a Retrospective Exhibition with the title of Geometry, Color and Musicality, digital diagrams and painting 1991-2015, in the Municipal Exhibition Center of the city, Elche-Elx.
Julia Sáez-Angulo, vicepresident of the Madrid Association of Art Critics, AMCA, and member of the AECA / Spain International, writes in the catalog:

Geometry, Color and Musicality are three concepts of the eurythmy that emerges from the artistic work of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES.
Geometry in which the rhythm of a musicality visible to the eyes is appreciated, inaudible, only in appearance.
She draws the dancing rhythm of a musicality that manifests herself in the wise administration of color on the support of paper, canvas ... geometry that dances; a musicality that is expressed in colors. Kandinsky already talked about it when he attributed musical notes to colors. Look at the sounds, hear the color.

Since the 90s, ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES has a coherent research trajectory in Geometric Art, painting, sculpture and digital diagrams, from hers works of Continuous SpatialTracing, Combinables to El Hilo de Ariadna. Geometry, color, rhythm and musicality are present in a creative world of lines, circles, squares, pixels ... A kaleidoscopic flicker, ordered by an artistic mind. Without leaving the painting, she uses the new technological means, which are fundamental in the generation of her innovative geometric works.

Geometry, Color and Musicality, is the conceptual key that describes the digital and pictorial geometrical work of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES.
The lines drawn in the space reticular square, horizons that expand in cartographies of the musicality, express in the digital geometries of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES a perception of she  at different countries, continents or cities: MUSICALITY-Sweden-Madrid-South America-Berlin -NewYork-MumbaiBombay-Beiying-Europe-GreeceGrecia-Tokyo-Paris-Nepal-Brooklyn-Africa-Universe.   

ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES in 1965 entered and she studied for Professor of Drawing at the Superior Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, Madrid and the Complutense University. She lived in Madrid until 1997 and then in London, was a guest artist at Gasworks Studios in London, and since mid-1999 resides in Alicante. In 2000 he returned to London to make an exhibition at Hortensia Art Gallery, Kensington and Chelsea College in London. 
In 2003 ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES presented her geometry research, El hilo de Ariadna-Combinatoria, with the new technological media. Geometric art: one hundred works (200x100 cm.each) for the Art Collection of Hotel H. Amerigo, Alicante.
In Continuous Spatial  Drawings, the female author highlights each brushstroke in an affirmation of the energy, lines in brushstrokes of unique gesture, singular each  of the lines in the meditative trajectory in the realization, rhythms in color gradations in the squares of her works of the Geometric Art. ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES continues to create geometry compositions with the new digital media, with the pixels being the structure of the line.

Mathematical reason in works of digital geometry named, Tokyo and Beijing in ihers Asian contemplation. He declares that after digital works, New York, he became interested in Asia in what it has of musicality, color and thought.
The painter  ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES with the idea of ​​the point or circle next to the square, proportionality with the lines and the color of the codes, project, with their capacity of suggestion within the same geometry, an almost infinite dynamics of the continuous spatial development that the painter has proposed in her investigation.

ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, (Elche, Alicante, 1949) has made a decided commitment to Geometric Art, developing orthogonally organized shapes and colors. Following paths already opened by the geometric Kandinsky of the German Bauhaus, author of POINT AND LINE ON THE PLANO, and Dutch Neoplasticism, ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES understands hers painting and hers sculpture as a mathematical system of proportions and geometric shapes.
ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES achieves to formulate, in 1991, a basic reticular module of squares, where she drew the points and lines. This module will be the beginning of future experimentation in Geometric Art. 
A geometric and mathematical cosmos, that ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES considers independent worlds, but participants in the totality. They are perfectly calculated according to systems of proportion in their measurements. These forms signify the concept of the full and empty. The relation between full spaces and empty spaces is dialectically dynamic, because it generates multiple variations, determined by the color, shape, number, and direction of the lines. We are, therefore, before an interactive space that generates an integrating harmony of all the geometric elements in the composition, with effects close to the Optical art.

The thread of Ariadna, is the generic name that has adopted to denominate to hers works, inspired in the marble sculpture of Ariadna of the Museum of the Prado, ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES discovered in this marble (1987) an harmony of geometric and mathematical order that went to preside over your future work. The space research has been formally complicating his proposals with a multiplication of sequences of rhythmic sequences, parallel to the world of music, pictorial geometries that she calls Continuous Space Path. From this proposal hers work is incorporated into the new technologies applicable to the art of painting.

The recent works of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES offer us geometries of infinite development thanks to the combinatorial of color and the process of the image generated by computer where the brushstroke is now structured by the pixel (picture element), dot in a rectilinear grid of points to form a geometric digital image.
With this digital process of the image, she has made the geometries of the present exhibition Música y Arte II. They constitute the beginning of a new series whose dot of expansion is musicality.
ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES has been able to see and work on the aesthetic aspects offered by the graphics of the musical notation. The pentagram or tetragram constitute the linear structure where the musical "signs" are deposited, she tries to evoke the true graphia, which allows it to develop formal investigations related to Optical art and suggest virtual movements.

PIXELS (2003) ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES (ELCHE 1949), she in this exhibition presents her work of Digital Geometric Art, El Hilo de Ariadna - Combinatoria, a research with new technological media. The result is innovative, rigorous and coherent that we can observe in the evolution of hers work, whose genesis is in the pictorial work of hers teacher Antonio López García and from which her assimilated the measure and direct-gesture.

In the observation of the sublime marble sculpture of Ariadna that she discovered in the Prado Museum (1984), ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES tries to armonize her creative Thread to get herself the labyrinth of her artistic capacity.
Geometry in the plane and in the space that in something  would assimilate of the teachings that she received from the also Alicante artist, Eusebio Sempere.
The lines drawn, made in a dynamic way, of a single gesture, in relation of proportionality with space reticular, mathematics and geometry, time and light. And the origin of Trazado Espacial Continuo Continuous Spatial Drawings has been for more than a decade in the geometry of hers work Combinables.
That is why in the artworks of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES we contemplate geometries that can be multiplied infinitely thanks to the combinatorial of color and digital processes, which are possible by linking their Geometry research with the new technological advances of science computer.
She draws, from the point, original singular gestural lines in the reticular space, in rhythmic sequences, that in this work of Digital Geometric Art, the pixels constituting of the new structure of the line.
 This exhibition, belonging to the hundred works of geometry (digital printing on canvas 90x180cm each) which constitute the Amerigo Collection, can be seen in Alicante at the Hotel of the same name, where the geometries designed by ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES will show us a world of harmonies fused with the Mediterranean light, where the azure and marine blue, the earth and solar ocher, and the violet tones of an alborear of the horizon prevail, which is the line from which all forms emerge.

Entre el uno, el dos y el tres                                                                                                           
text Isabel Tejeda Martín (2001)
... are obsessively drawn lines in which ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES (ELCHE 1949) meditates the rhythms that emerge in the trajectory of its layout in relation of proportionality with the space of the square modules in hers works of  Geometric Art. Modules that according to her, contain laws of harmony. It could be a rational, thoughtful composition, and in fact it is in principle. But observing each line it is evident that they do not respond to a unifying system. On the contrary, they confirm: the absolute difference of each one of the lines with the rest of those that are placed in the picture. With all the lines of the paintings that make up the series. Of all the series of lines started at the beginning of the 90s. Of  all the painted lines of the world.
It is evident, albeit in a subtle way, the instant of its production; a time of the painting that purport to drag with him the time of perception. The transmission of emotions.
In the lines of the modules arranged tidily in the paintings made by ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, the different degrees of emotion, tension, tranquility, enthusiasm, distancing... from the moment of painting are glimpsed. Already raised it, albeit in an ironic way, Lichtenstein when he designed his large-format brushstroke with bendéi points. And it is the praise of that brushstroke, in which with hers lines insists ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES. Sometimes at great brushstrokes, anothers  as in a mantra. In numerous and small lines. With the rhetoric of repetition. But also more surprising.
A year ago in a ceramic workshop organized by the CAPA Foundation, ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, experiments in the three dimensions, she presented some first investigations of the limits, which she had already done in sculpture. What happens in the limits? From a wave to an angle, for example. Fundamental considerations in Geometric Art.Numbers are there to infinity. But, if you want to understand it, you need to analyze the infinite relation between 1, 2 and 3.

text by J. Antonio Lisbona (1993)
ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES (ELCHE 1949). She remained pensive observing the power and subtlety of a sculpture that is in the Rotunda of the Hall of the Muses of the Prado Museum. It was the marble sculpture of Ariadna, the sculpture that the painter Diego Velázquez (1599-1660) brought from Rome to King Felipe IV and that Velázquez himself would paint it in Rome in the canvas of 44x38 cm, View of the garden of the Villa Medicis-Noon.
ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, at the Museo del Prado interpreted this marble sculpture of Ariadna in two paintings from 1986-88, what is really important is that this marble sculpture would give reasons to ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES for his future work geometric.

Now he presents hers recent works of Geometric Art in the Exhibition Hall CAM of Alicante, which has taken the scoop of her proposal, with the title of COMBINABLES, Continuous Space Path, works that ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, has also been grouped in three research notebooks, laborious, concrete, mathematical and geometric arrangement, the point, the lines, the square, color ... The process surprised the author and impelled her as in a story by Jorge Luis Borges, in the boundless infinity of geometry and color.

She painted labyrinths of cubic and cylindrical forms on the surface of some tables, compositions of an approach to the work of Morandi, which later she would represent with architectural influence in large-format paintings. This theme preludes the geometry that would intensively come later in the artistic creativity of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES. In the sculpture COMBINABLES mixes cubes and cylinders of steel in balanced composition. Space, point, lines, numbers, structures, brushstrokes, variants, layout, trajectory, technology, painting ..., all are words and concepts that the artist ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES has written in the notebooks and on the canvas poetic brushstrokes. Art and theoretical formulation made at the same time.
COMBINABLES text by J. Antonio Lisbona (1993)                                                              
Espiral de las Artes num.5-6 September / October 1993

... It is the Ariadne sculpture of the Museo del Prado, the marble sculpture that Velázquez brought from Rome and that he painted in his magnificent paintings of "Villa Médicis", the one that has inspired  to ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES to draw Labyrinths in the Art.
In her paintings she recovers a metaphysics of space and form; of the transit with light and thought  
It can be done to transcend the simplest image if the brushstroke and the mind are able to raise it to the category level.
This is what happens with hers pictorial compositions of cylindrical and cubic forms of reflecting light. They silence or reveal codes.

The immense risk of starting over the waves

Text María Carmen Africa Vidal Claramonte (1993)
The CAM of Alicante has offered in its exhibition hall on Oscar Esplá Avenue 37, an exhibition of GEOMETRIC ART by ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES (ELCHE1949) which since the mid 60s has studied and lives in Madrid.
She offers us paintings from her first realistic period of metaphysical influence. And paintings and  a sculpture of her new stage of geometric art that presents precisely in Alicante.

ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES is fascinated by space, and she hypothesizes with two basic elements in her work, the square and the circle, the cube and the cylinder. In the previous, realistic paintings, we notice, however, certain evolution towards the geometric shape and the space that makes us to reflect on solitude, on silence, on our own soul: and the wonderful painting that she made (1987) of the marble sculpture of Ariadne, looking towards the infinite.

From this work ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, radically goes on to make her new works in geometric art, to paintings constructed with lines and dots, with rectangles that have been painted in a single stroke, and, thus, none is the same, they are all different. Identity, repetition and diversity at the same time. Continuing with the squares, the cubic and cylindrical structure, with the mathematical accuracy of the measurements, ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, realizes the projects for hers sculptural works. But in addition to creating painting and sculpture, she composes with the words.
And, most importantly, the integral proposal in the Geometric Art by ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES for the realization of her works, emerges from the same mathematical concept that she has transcribed in the excellent catalog of the exhibition.

This is the first time you will see the work of the visual artist ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES in the United Kingdom. During her residency at Gasworks, she has produced new works with the referent of the marble sculpture Ariadne at the Museo del Prado, in Madrid, I discovered that the harmony she evoked was fitted perfectly a geometric and mathematical pattern.
ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES seeks to achieve harmony through the expression of the moment, constituted by line-space-time within proportional relation with the square  reticle structures. The singularity of each line is a step towards Light.

text byJosé Manuel Alvarez Enjuto (2002)
It is not easy to respond to the arithmetic and orthogonal processes, of the poetry and sensitivity in the compositional contents in the work of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES (ELCHE1949). She makes in Geometric Art an expressive formulation centered almost specifically on the research of spatial ordering through the serial multiplication of the line in progression. In the relation and the consecutive evolution with the only trace of a mediatic line in the space, or what is the same, through the drawing of a line, she manages to reach the metaphysical purpose of the creative eagerness.

The arithmetic and emotional poetry in the work of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES has that consubstantial truth that responds to a pristine and essential fact endowed with a metaphysical transcendence capable of altering any philosophical conjecture. Art transcending through arithmetic formulas and rhythmic spatial sequences that she describes.
Iconography where the continuous module, the coherent mathematical variation dominates the visuality, demands, at least, a reflection on the mathematical painting and the balanced spatial orders. And this inevitably leads us to the stream of Stilj, Mondrian, Rietveld authors who understood that in geometry and spatial arrangement by means of balanced flat chromatic or compositional icons, rational orders could be established in the argumentation of their proposals.
Processes in the elaboration of those gestural lines support of the works. A fact of transcendence if we understand the Geometric  Art of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES from her creativity, with the congregation of all these expressive singularities that she has in geometric poetry.

Certainly the iconography transcribed in the paintings of the artist ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES may correspond to the genuine calligraphic material of the geometric repertoire of the square reticular and the music of arithmetic in their interactions.
A composition based on the repetitive modular beauty of the line and the quadrangular geometric grid, capable of claiming expansion, limitlessness and affirmation once the gestures drawn from the mathematical variable are the agents of the resulting harmonies, We have understand a very special expressiveness in the works of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES that she gives in the accuracy of the brushstroke in the discursive process of a meditative calligraphic order.
A pristine pictorial expression, based on the measure, the gesture the compositional rhythms, the formal transition, the chromatic vibration, the metaphysical transcendence. The geometry and arithmetic as a determining reason.

This work of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES (Elche, Alicante, 1949) culminates a long trajectory in the series of Geometric Art, El Hilo de Ariadna- Combinatoria, where the results derived from one of the most important issues in the history of art is reached: the searching for a harmony and a basic order that beats in the depths of human nature. Establishing order and proportion in art means giving an intellectual and conscious direction to a subconscious impulse.
Modern psychology defends the hypothesis that the search for order on which beauty is based is something inherent to our identity as rational beings, and in that situation our interpretation of nature is predominantly mathematical. In these circumstances, the new technologies are used by ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES to make use of their lines and brushstrokes as the basic material of her artworks and as a point of reflection of it, using as a matter of creation the formal elements and conceptuals.

Einstein affirmed that there is no logical way to discover the elementary laws; according to him there is only the path of intuition. The perception of the order behind appearances, its musicality, is something that is intuited by the visual artist ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES. Consequently, her works could be conceived as structures of the harmony related to the need to express them in mathematical terms. The paintings and digital geometry  of the work of Iluminada García-Torres is founded  on an irrefutable truth of numbers and proportions that seem to reveal  in some way the pre-established harmony.

Una imagen de espejo, por muy nítida y resplandeciente que se ofrezca, no dejará de ser –frente a la primitiva- un artificio. Otra cosa es cuando la sensibilidad del espíritu traductor del artista, se adhiere a los objetos, juega exquisitamente con ellos, sin pretender cambiar su estructura y los deja iluminados de su propia alma. Los objetos no dejan de ser los mismos, pero magnificados de un halo, como las inefables visiones surgidas –con verismo incontrastable- para los ojos puros.

Esta reflexión síntesis de lo que críticamente puede decirse de la obra de Iluminada García Torres  bastaría para explicar al buen entendedor el sentido esencial de dichas pinturas.

Se explica perfectamente la sorprendente novedad de un arte como éste atenido a las  estrictas y nobles directrices del hacer adquirido. El mejor de los realismos –como el de Iluminada García Torres-  no estriba tanto en la verosimilitud modélica, como en el afán conseguido de acoger lo normal y cotidiano, en auras de muy bien  estudiada atmósfera estética.

Para hacer llegar a la atención del contemplador las sencillas cosas humildes que nos ocupan es preciso una técnica acabada, manejo diestrísimo de los medios consecutivos y un deseo ferviente de captarlas casi con unción admirativa, inscribiendo sus límites, colores y perfiles en un área –que por muy reales que sigan siendo las cosa- es ya irreal, subjetiva e indudablemente más que vista, creada.

2018  ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES realiza nuevas obras de Arte Geométrico digital y pictorial.

Iluminada Garcia-Torres (Spain)
1 December 1998 - 1 March 1999
This is the first time Iluminada's work will be seen in the UK. During her residency at Gasworks she has produced new works inspired by the Ariadne sculpture in Museo del Prado, in Madrid. I discovered that the harmony she invoked fitted perfectly a geometrical and mathematical reason.
Iluminada García-Torres seeks to achieve harmony through the expression of the moment, constituted by line-space-time, within proportional relation with the square structures. The singularity of each line is a step towards Light.

Las líneas trazadas en los cuadrados, horizontes que se expanden en musicalidad, expresan una percepción de la mirada de Iluminada García-Torres a su obra de arte geométrico.
En la pintura de Trazado Espacial Continuo la autora resalta la pincelada como
una afirmación de la energía plasmada en cada trazo, líneas en pinceladas de gesto único, singulares cada una de ellas en su trayectoria meditativa de los instantes vividos. Ritmos en gradaciones de colorido dentro de los cuadrados.
Iluminada García-Torres realiza composiciones de geometría con los nuevos medios digitales, los píxeles son la estructura del trazado de las líneas.
