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-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 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 works of Continuous Space Tracing and Combinables to El Hilo de Ariadna, 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-GreeceGreece-Tokyo-Paris-Nepal-Brooklyn-Africa-Universe.                               
ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES, in 1965 she ingress and studied for Professor of Drawing at the Superior Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, Madrid and the Complutense University of Madrid. She 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 of she, with the new digital media, the PIXELS  constitute the structure of the lines.

Iluminada García-Torres investigates in her Digital Geometry, Mumbai Bombay. text by Julia Sáez-Angulo
ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES (ELCHE 1949) investigates in her Digital Geometry artworks that she denominate Mumbai Bombay, in wide view and reflection on Asia.
In fact all her work in geometric abstraction begins with the proposal that she formulated in the catalog of her exhibition Combinables in 1993, where is the origin and the mathematical reason that ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES has developed in the geometry digital works, Tokyo, Beijing and now Mumbai Bombay, in hers Asian contemplation. She declares that after the New York digital geometries, she became interested in Asia in terms of musicality, color and though.

Exhibitions made by ILUMINADA GARCIA-TORRES (1949) 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. 


1949 Elche Elx (Alicante) España
1965-1970 Studies Professor Drawing in the Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, Madrid and Faculty of Fine Arts COMPLUTENSE UNIVERSITY, MADRID. In the first course the teacher of ILUMINADA GARCIA TORRES is the painter Antonio López García and in 1969 Eusebio Sempere, year that he reconciled the teaching with the research at the Computing Center, Complutense University of Madrid.
ILUMINADA 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 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 Ariadne, 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.
