Tanaka joined the Gutai Art Association in 1955. With her “Electric Dress,” composed of light bulbs colored with synthetic enamel paints, presented in “Gutai Art on the Stage” (1956), Tanaka entered the limelight. This idea was inspired by electrical diagrams, where innumerable circles are intertwined with lines. Tanaka consistently used synthetic resin enamel as a medium. With glossy materials and vivid colors, her creations have an energetic presence. Tanaka is considered one of the representative figures of the early period of the Gutai movement, along with artists like Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga. Tanaka’s works have been included in many exhibitions in the US and Europe.
