1998 Journey to the West - by Raymond Lau Poo Seng
The National Arts Club, Gregg and Marquis Galleries - New York, USA 
Journey to the West


RAYMOND LAU is an artist of singular gifts and determination to share his unique vision. The National Arts Club was privileged to meet Raymond Lau initially in June 1997 when the distinguished and historic artist colony. Yaddo, in Saratoga Springs New York made arrangements for this young Singapore native to stay within the clubhouse in Manhattan.
The National Arts Club is private and a stranger cannot scale its facade without a sponsor and high credentials. Raymond jumped into Club life as a seal in deep water and his energy and curiosity were astounding and exciting. Raymond showed boundless energy in meeting new people and exploring the city's multiple neighborhoods and attractions. While Raymond had a bridge provided to enter historic Gramercy Park because of the shared benefactor, Spencer Trask (19th) of Yaddo and the National Arts Club; Raymond was his own architect in erecting the road to our high esteem and heart.
His ability to transcend a physical handicap provides perhaps a heightened awareness of the richness of our world in terms of culture and dimensions of human spirit. Raymond reflects in his artwork the honey of perception, which sustains him, and we are lucky there is honey to spare for all those who love and need beauty to push forward.
