Known for his conceptually based art practice, Amado was born in San Antonio, Texas. He received his BA in English from the University of Texas at Austin and his BFA and MFA from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Amado resided in both Texas and New York City for many years, but has now chosen to live in his hometown full time.
The works in 30 Day Rx are informed by Amado’s recent personal experience with illness and prescription drugs. Focusing on the gamut of ways that pharmaceuticals inflect our daily lives, Amado reveals the beauty, power, and consequences of living in bodies consisting of, and charged with, chemicals. Take a dose.
30 Day Rx runs from April 30 through June 6, 2015 at Ruiz-Healy Art, located at 210-A East Olmos Drive in Olmos Park. There will be a cocktail reception Thursday, April 30, 6:00-8:00 pm. An artist Talk moderated by Patty Ortiz will be held Saturday, May 9, 2015, at 1:00 pm.
