Tanizaki believes that painting is a medium capable of direct expression and has the power to unashamedly expose emotional details and the reality of living in various relationships. It can also help us accept negative reality by expressing morbid, extremely lonely, and vulnerable parts of our lives in the form of images. She feels that the process of recovery after accepting difficulties generates a great deal of energy and that there is a strong possibility, especially in things that do not follow logic, are not likely to be the subjects of academic study, or are mundane or insignificant. She wants to capture this energy and show it in her work.
