Michael Betancourt: _ Manifesto

on the basis of __________: we are human and true
for the sake of __________, __________, and
__________. At the crossroads of the lights, alert,
attentively awaiting __________.

If you find it futile and don’t want to waste your time on a
__________ that means nothing, consider that here we
cast __________ on fertile ground. Here we have a right
to do some prospecting, for we have __________.
We are ghosts drunk on energy, we dig into __________.

We are a __________ as tropically abundant as
__________, which is the art of making
 established as __________ on a
canvas before our eyes, yet today the striving for
__________ in a work of art seems __________
to art. Art is a __________ concept, exalted as
__________, inexplicable as life, indefinable and
__________. The work of art comes into being through
the __________ of the elements.

The medium is as __________ as the artist. Essential only
is the forming, and because the medium is __________,
any __________ whatsoever will __________.

__________ is the name for such art.
__________ stands for freedom. __________
changes meaning with the change in the insight of those who view
it. Every artist must be allowed to mold a picture out of
__________. The __________ of natural
elements is __________ to a work of art. Instead, it is the
artist who __________ to produce __________,
in order to make a better art.
