Rodney Forbes, ‘Have you ever been becalmed? ’, 2016, Glenn Green Galleries

This painting is from my 2017 exhibition ‘The Sea, The Sea’, which explored the mythical voyages of Saint Brendan, an Irish Abbott who was said to have sailed to America before Columbus. He encountered many magical islands, monsters and trials, including being becalmed for many weeks in the Sargasso Sea
