Tokie Rome-Taylor explores themes of time, spirituality, identity. Often integrating found objects as artifacts and conduits of memory, her subjects are inserted into the past of an alternate reality, creating the narrative of them being their ancestors in the present for their heirs to see in the future. These ancestors embody power over destiny, representation, and spirit, influencing the viewer as their descendants. They reflect a past African Americans would have had in a utopian world untethered by the faults of the reality of America’s history.
