Rodney Forbes, ‘Saint Brendan and the crystal pillar ’, 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 wonders, including this vast crystal pillar.
