The Petrol Duckie is a glittery, glistening visual commentary on disguising our child-like greed for oil. Here, you have a soft plush toy, made concrete by coating them, suffocating them with our own desire for glitz. The weight of the coating causes the sweet children’s toys to droop, as it sits in a resin pool of oil.
