Photo: KRISTINA RAPLEY By KRISTINA RAPLEY Live art: Vivian Masters painting at the Big Day Out. Turning heads is all in a day's work for Vivien Masters. The 23-year-old artist from Cockle Bay has always attracted atten- tion for her look and she's now gaining atten- tion in the art world. She was one of 10 artists chosen to take part in Live Art for Char- ity at this year's Big Day Out on January 21. Organised by Auck- land nightclub and func- tion centre Cassette Nine, the artists had to create a piece of artwork in front of 45,000 partygoers and live bands. It was really full on,'' she says. I chose to do a really detailed artwork so it took me longer than all the other artists, eight hours all up. I was kneeling on the ground or standing for most of the day so I felt like I'd run a marathon the day after.'' All 10 artworks will be exhibited and put up for sale at Cassette Nine with half the profits going to the artists and the rest to the Sustainable Coastlines Charity. Sustainable Coastlines organise coastal clean- ups at beaches, coastlines and islands. It's a charity close to Vivien's heart because she spent much of her childhood playing at Cockle Bay beach. She enjoys photogra- phy, painting and sketching and most of her work centres around femininity. I love the female form, the waist and hips, the long limbs and dainty features,'' she says. I'm all about playing up femininity and going over the top. I love 18th century fashion too, it was ter- ribly impractical -- but fabulous,'' she says. Vivien has always dressed out of the ordi- nary. On school mufti days when other kids were wearing the newest fashion, she was wearing vintage fur coats and lip- stick. I started getting into the gothic look when I was a teenager and got piercings and dyed my hair all kinds of colours. My mother was quite distraught. She thought I wasn't going to be able to get a job and people wouldn't take me seriously.'' She has recently resigned from her job at the Auckland City Library to pursue art fulltime and has already got a few illustration jobs lined up. The Live Art for Char- ity exhibition is on this Friday from 4pm until late at Cassette Nine, 9 Vulcan Lane, central Auckland. It's gold coin entry and entertainment focused around the exhibition will be on from 6pm- 10pm with drinks and nibbles provided. A percentage of the bar sales will also be donated to the charity.
