Khaldi doesn’t consider himself to be a political artist; the themes in his work evolve from his own experiences and ideas and thus provide the most powerful material for making art. In his canvases, harsh realities become mixed with imagined scenes, confusing fact and fiction with a sense of nostalgia or dreams. His tableaux are equally beautiful and uncertain. In Frozen, a man is rendered midfall, his position beatific and Christ-like. In the distance encampments of tents line the landscape, reminiscent of Palestine’s occupation.
