Sarıtoprak explains the theme of her works with refernces to her first solo exhibition:

“The period when I felt that I was painting in the real sense of the word includes the Miyazaki adventure. During my first encounter with painting, I was under the influence of films of Hayao Miyazaki. Thanks to them, I found a way to express myself, because they helped me overcome my biggest longings. Later on, rather than overcoming these longings, I decided to express the longing itself. By carrying the traditional idioms of my village into my paintings I concreted the situation. In general, this process represents the expression of my crisis in urban life and my longings for village. The “here – there” dilemma of my life reflects on my drawings with its every aspect, often with my vision from here and often from there.
