The Underpainter

reviewed by Ann Skea
"Henri always says that brilliance is moving towards colour, not towards white," says Austin Fraser to the eccentric Abbott Thayer. Yet, in his own life and in his painting he seeks colours which camouflage and conceal him just as surely as Thayer's blue jay becomes invisible in shadowed snow. Always, Fraser has refused to look beneath surface appearances, to feel emotions, to be curious about people or to open himself, in any way, to the world. Like the 'erasures' he creates in his art, his life is scraped back and hidden beneath multiple surface layers. As in his art, life becomes disturbing only when some covered fragments seep through. Yet it is not these seeped, blurred fragments of Fraser's life which disturb the reader as he tell his story, but the absences, the subtle emotions and connections which he ignores but which grow in the reader's mind so that we begin to question Fraser's humanity, to imagine the feelings of those whose lives he affects, and to judge him. In the end, we can only agree with his own self-assessment of what his life has been: "You have used everything around you. And for what? An arrangement of colours on a flat surface". This book, however, is far more than a flat arrangement of colours. From the opening lines of the book, I found myself seduced by Urquhart's writing in a way I couldn't quite managed to explain. Her clear vision is reflected in language which is plain and quite ordinary, yet her art is subtle, delicate, multi-faceted and very moving. It is an art of shifting light and shade, as Fraser's tries to be, but her engagement with humanity is deep and she uses the language of painting in a sensual and erotic way which her narrator could never achieve.

    Each of her novels has brought Jane Urquhart increased attention and acclaim. Saturday Night described her novel Changing Heaven as a "beautifully written book" that "throbs with the storm and wind of passion" and Janice Kulyk Keefer has called Urquhart "One of the most compelling and accomplished voices in contemporary Canadian fiction." Of her enormously successful 1993 novel, Away , Timothy Findley wrote: "It is a great romantic tale - rich in imagery and with language worthy of Emily Bront and Thomas Hardy. Like these writers, she is unafraid of words and spends them fearlessly. The uses to which she puts her command of language are beautiful and breathtaking." Away earned Urquhart both national and international acclaim from critics and readers. On the Globe and Mail bestseller list for 132 weeks, a record for any Canadian book
