In his figurative work, as in his abstract painting, the painter Géneau favours the composition of the picture. In his "still lifes" the arrangement of the elements, shapes and colours, is harmoniously arranged. The composition of the painting, whether pyramidal, asymmetrical, horizontal or vertical, is rigorous and always balances values and colours. Light is taken into account and often benefits from the contrast of the background. When it is a landscape background, the painter blurs it to give it more depth. Géneau's paintings have been the subject of more than 100 "personal" exhibitions over the last 50 years (Europe, USA, Japan, China). The peony, the Chinese national flower, symbol of power, feminine beauty and generosity, is often present in the painter's compositions, and has made the success of his exhibitions in galleries and museums in China.
