Tom Fitzgerald casts a satirical glance at 2020 and sketches it out in a series of 16 drawings on ceramic tile about Trumpism, Brexit and Covid-19. The Best Laid Plans illustrates how satire and political cartooning can capture the spirit and pressures of a time with quick precision. Drawn on ceramic tiles these sharp witted drawings present a perspective on the year that was.
