Painting and Sculpture
Individual artists portray the dignity and hopes of the Landless, helping
to re-signify the term from a negative -- those without the means of production
and social reproduction -- into a positive. Paintings and sculptures also
draw upon and further invest with meaning symbols of the collective history
and aspirations of the MST: tools, the fence, the movement's flag; the
land, both as barren and divided and as lush and accommodating human habitation.
