9 years ago I started a project- which is still in progress -called Soapbubble Studies. For me Soapbubbles are a metaphor for the impermanence and fragility of life. And they are definitely a test for my patience , as they never behave as planned due to to weather conditions.What I like most about this project are also the funny reactions of bypassers. Imagine yourself after a long exhausting hike up to a mountain where you'll find me and my boyfriend doing giant soap bubbles. ( And yes we've also been dragging up camera equipment and liters of liquid soap up to several mountains around 3000 meters height )I plan to continue the project in several other locations , hopefully featuring Madagaskar and Iceland too. So far the series have been taking place in the moroccan desert, in various places in Austria, Italy and Spain. Printed on Hahnemuehle Photorag, 50x75 cm, Edition of 25+2ap,handsigned and numbered.

Marlies Plank has enthralled a multitude of art enthusiasts and critics, continually captivating people's hearts with her unique artistic vision. Her long-term photography project, "Soapbubble Studies," has been in progress since 2010 and has become a significant milestone in her career. In this project, Marlies Plank captures giant soap bubbles floating through idyllic landscapes. The combination of majestic natural settings and the surreal elements of the floating soap bubbles creates a unique aesthetic, inviting the viewer to immerse into a world of fantasy. In the "Dream On" series, Marlies Plank takes us on a journey into a world full of surreal wonders and fantastic visions. The series depicts pink elephants in various epochs and within works of old master paintings. However, the inspiration behind these works goes deeper than the colors and forms the eye can perceive. The idea for the "Dream On" series originated from an unusual situation during the COVID-19 pandemic in Austria. When the Austrian government declared that a baby elephant would serve as a unit of measurement for the distance people were supposed to keep, Marlies Plank was fascinated by this whimsical concept. This absurd everyday measure helped her cope with the challenges of the pandemic and find a way to view reality through the lens of creativity. Over time, the artist began to perceive pink baby elephants in her surroundings, becoming a symbol of hope, comfort, and magic in uncertain times. Fondly called "Dream Elephants," they accompanied her through dark days, connecting her to her childhood imagination and creativity.
