Meet Mick Lorusso
Mick Lorusso, visual artist, focuses on energy in its many forms: as sustenance, movement, sensation, electricity, and light. Integrating science, mysticism, ecology, and community, he creates drawing, sculpture, and urban intervention. After losing his stepfather to Leukemia, he began fusing art, science, and the power of light to heal cancerous cells.

Ephemeral mural, Colorado Springs, CO, USA: 8 x 30 M, 2004
Transforming Tutt was an intervention of 18 painted burlap banners on the side of Tutt library on the Colorado College campus. The gestural forms and flow of air across the burlap acted to dissolve Tutt’s blocky cement architecture into the surrounding flow of trees, mountains, water, shadows, and wind.
“A lot of the first work that I made after my father passed was actually quite messy and angry and tormented…” — Mick Lorusso
