to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Matthew Day Jackson

Road maps, city maps, country maps ... my mind starts to travel whenever I see one.  I love looking at maps, could do it for hours ... 
This fact combined with wood; no wonder I was lovestruck when I saw this.

Only part of a larger work at Art Brussels.
This is stunning, intriguing, fascinating ... I was hooked even before I saw the title of this work.  Knowing what it was about made it even more breathtaking. (for the record, this is not me in the picture)
