One of Carlos Goico’s favorite themes is the Sacred Owl, which is based on Caribbean folklore. There was actually a huge owl in the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo that would fly past his studio at night. Sometimes dark and ominious and other times very colorful, his owls were among the denizens of his private world. This owl looks to me like a descending angel. It was recently featured in an exhibition of Goico’s works. The first since his death in 2009.

Here are some more paintings and drawings of flowers by Carlos Goico. He had no money and would paint on anything he could find. The red and yellow flowers from 1977, one of the oldest paintings by him, was painted on a block of wood. I have a few like this and I have seen more. He got these pieces of wood from the garbage of a factory.
