La expansión de la pintura en las auras frías
texto de Simón Marchán Fiz
ILUMINADA GARCIA TORRES (EICHE 1949), desenreda el Hilo de Ariadna a través de una combinatoria óptica impregnada por la aleatoriedad cibernética, código expresado en líneas que contrastan con la presencia inmutable de los cuadrados en cuanto grado cero y referencia a lo esencial, un gran lirísmo, las vibraciones de color y la armonía del equilibrio se complementan.

The expansion of the painting in the cold auras 
text by Simón Marchán Fiz
ILUMINADA  GARCIA TORRES (EICHE 1949), she unravels Ariadne's Thread through an optical combinatorial impregnated by cybernetic randomness, a code expressed in lines that contrast with the unchanging presence of squares as zero grade and reference to the essentials, a great lyricism, color vibrations and harmony of balance complement each other.

GEOMETRIC POETRY and EMOTIONAL ARITHMETICS
text by José 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 theGeometric  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.
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.

TEXTOS
MARIA ILUMINADA GARCIA TORRES (1949Elche-Elx. Spain)

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 he 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 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.

Texts by Laura Sanz García (2004),

IILUMINADA GARCIA TORRES, (Elche, Alicante, 1949) she  has made a decided commitment to Geometric Art, developing orthogonally organized shapes and colors. Following paths opened by the geometric Kandinsky of the German Bauhaus, author of POINT AND LINE ON THE PLANO, and Dutch Neoplasticism, ILUMINADA GARCIA TORRES 
understands her painting and her sculpture as a mathematical system of proportions and geometric shapes.
ILUMINADA GARCIA TORRES achieves to formulate, in 1991, a basic 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 of the totality, calculated according to systems of proportion in their measurements.  The relation between full space and empty spaces is dynamic, because it generates multiple variations, determined by the color, shape, number, and direction of the lines, an interactive space that generates an integrating harmony of all the geometric elements in the composition.
The thread of Ariadna, is the generic name that has adopted to denominate to her work ILUMINADA GARCIA TORRES, as a consequence painting (1986-88) the marble sculpture of Ariadna of the Museum of the Prado, in which she discovered a harmony of geometric y order mathematician that was to preside over her future work. The space research has been formally complicating his proposals with a multiplication of rhythmic sequences, parallel to the world of music, pictorial geometries that she calls Continuous Spatial Drawings. From this proposal her work is incorporated into the new technologies applicable to the art of painting.
The recent works of ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, geometries of infinite development of 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 attempt to evoke the true graphia, which allows it to develop formal investigations related to Optical art and suggest virtual movements.

LA MIRADA ACTUAL
Tuesday, June 2, 2015
02/06/15.- ILUMINADA GARCIA TORRES (Elche 1949) she 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-Angulovicepresident 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 she, ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES has a coherent research trajectory in Geometric Art, painting, sculpture and digital diagrams, from her work of Continuous Spatial Tracing, 
Combinables to El Hilo de Ariadne. Geometry, color, rhythm and musicality are present in a creative world of lines, circles, squares, pixels ... designed by her artistic mind. Without leaving the painting, she uses the new technological means, which are fundamental in the generation of her innovative geometric artworks.
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 1965-1970 she ingress and studied Professor of Drawing at the Superior Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, Madrid and Complutense University of MadridShe lived in Madrid until 1997 and later in London, where she was a guest artist at Gasworks Studios of London, and since mid-1999 she resides in Alicante. In 2000 she returned to London to make an exhibition at Hortensia 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 her Continuous Spatial  Drawings, she, the painter ILUMINADA GARCIA TORRES highlights each brushstroke in an affirmation of the energy, lines in brushstrokes of unique gesture, singular each  of the lines in the meditative trajectory  of rhythms in color gradations in the squares of her works in Geometric Art, and in the geometry compositions, with the new digital media, the PIXELS  constitute the structure of the lines.
