Jonathan Lemieux's Self-Portrait by the Window

Jonathan Lemieux is a multi-disciplinary and multi-talented artist from Montréal.  His work has been seen around the world.  This enigmatic image was part of Art Souterrain's exhibition of pieces outside the typical four walls of a gallery, having been displayed at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.  His impetus was to question the idea of art as a commodity and how the aesthetic and the sensuous fit into the larger sense of what attracts one to a piece of art.
