“灰 色 时 间 里 的 紫 色 时 光 ”。 英 国 诗 人 济 慈 (1975 年-1821 年)也创作了描述“充满甜蜜 之罪的紫色宫殿”的诗歌《拉弥亚》。紫色融 合了阳刚与阴柔气质,也只有紫色才同时象 征 着 同 性 恋 。当 同 性 恋 仍 是 禁 忌 并 为 世 人 所 鄙 时 , 紫 色 衬 衣 与 方 巾 是 “圈 内 人 ”用 以 识别彼此的暗号。此外,紫色也是属于女性 主义之色彩。 人称国际色彩大师的潘通色彩研究所执 行总裁利埃特里斯·艾斯曼在该公司的官方 新闻稿中表示,我们需要“探索新科技以及更 遥远的星际,实现艺术上的表达以及灵性上 的思考”,而“直观的紫外光色则照亮未知未 来”。潘通强调了紫色反主流文化、反传统以 及充满艺术气质的象征意义,并以吉他手吉 米·亨德里克斯、英国摇滚乐先驱大卫·鲍 伊以及美国传奇音乐家“王子”等人建立的形 象为例子,他们选择为自己定义自我,用紫 外光色调在西方流行文化中反映自己的独特 个性。2017 年,为了向逝世近两年的美国歌 手王子致敬,潘通以其经典名曲《紫雨》为 灵感,创造了一种独特的全新紫色色调,向 世人带来一种新的色彩。 쐽

lying in purpur. The colour of temporal power, in ecclesiastical interpretation, is the colour of eternity and justice, the colour of the divine and of faith. Those who wear violet like to draw attention, stand out from the crowd. Violet is more sexual than red, and that’s where the history of the colour resides. Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) called forbidden sexuality “the purple hours of grey time”. And John Keats (1975-1821) created fantasies about “that purplelined palace of sweet sin”. Violet combines the masculine and the feminine; no other colour symbolises homosexuality so well. When it was still punished and scorned, lilac-coloured shirts and violet foulards were discreet signs of recognition between “those in the know”. Violet is also the colour of feminism. Pantone explains the need for “exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy to artistic expression and spiritual reflection”, and “intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come”, explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, in the compayn’s official press release. The company reinforces the fact that this colour has a symbolism of counter-culture, of the anticonventional and of artistic shine, and as an example, recalls the image developed by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie and Prince, who chose it to define themselves, to reflect their individuality in Western pop culture through shades of the Ultra Violet family. In 2017, Pantone introduced a new colour. It created a distinctive new purple shade in homage to the American singer who died almost two years ago, in reference to his classic song ‘Purple Rain’. 쐽 澳门精华 | 2018年 2月- 3月 | 79
