‘Restriction’ is an online exhibition of miniature pieces of art inspired by restrictions of the pandemic.
This exhibition is displayed in a set of old printer’s letterpress drawers, with the drawers’ tiny compartments providing a stimulus for the exhibiting artists.
Inspired by the restrictions many of us have experienced due to Covid-19, more than 200 artists, from around the globe, have produced work for the show, resulting in over 1000 pieces of miniature artworks.
The new works will be exhibited at Clayhill Arts, Bridgwater, Somerset and showcased online via livestream video with the help of Ignite Somerset.
GRØÐING – RECOVERY

I presented a series of 4 dreamworlds, inspired by the topic.

Stuđul - Support
Afturfall - Relapse (sold)
Frávenjing - Withdrawal
This exhibition aims to bring different approaches from a range of cultures together under a common theme. Not only that, the exhibition has the aim to raise money for @bluedragonchildren.

Pinkudreyma.welt is an art project of Mixed Media Artist Theresa Kohlbeck, creating little woodbased dreamworlds. Theresa is a German creative, identifying as non-binary, who after spending ten years in the noisy party-metropolis Berlin decided to spend one year off the grid on an archipelago in the centre of the North Atlantic. Exchanging the dirty streets of Germany’s biggest city with the wild, untamed nature of the Faroe Islands. Art she produces under the name of Pinkudreyma.welt are, for her, a tool of recovery as well as for coping with anxiety. Works were exhibited in 2021 in Tórshavn & Fuglafjørður (FO), Hanoi (VN) Bridgwater (UK) and Reykjavík (IS).
I am a German creative, who after spending ten years in the noisy party-metropolis Berlin decided to spend a year
off the grid on an archipelago in the centre of the North Atlantic. Exchanging the dirty streets of Germany’s
biggest city with the wild, untamed nature of the Faroe Islands.
After struggling again with alcohol addiction, I created the project @pinkudreyma.welt in July 2020.
It helped me deal with the stresses of ongoing recovery and laid out a path into my third year of sobriety.
The name is a fusion of Faroese and German. It means little dream world.
The motives are taken from the Faroese nature, positioned on a wooden base and transferred into a dream by acrylic
colours, glitter and a glossy finish.
I mostly work in series around a variety of topics and take the titles of the artworks from the Faroese language.
Looking at the pieces is an invitation to loose yourself in a little daydream.
