Miami Color Theory is a photography project by award-winning artist and graphic designer Laura Paresky Gould. The series, shot on an iPhone and posted daily to Instagram @miamicolortheory, focuses on the colors, lines, and shapes of Greater Miami and Miami Beach’s built environment, and encourages the practice of seeing to appreciate the beauty all around us.

For No Vacancy 2023, Gould presents three installations:

Somewhere showcases 44 framed 12”x12” minimal photographic images of Miami that form a vibrant rainbow of color.

Three is a Magic Number features six framed 24”x24” minimalist photographs in black, white, and yellow, accompanied by three colorful cube chairs. Viewers are encouraged to sit and truly see, hear, and move, as a reminder of the power of enhancing perception and overall well-being.

Beach Palette is a collection of six 24”x24” lifeguard station images highlighting their colors and shapes. The striped graphic background with bold numbers emphasizes the streets where these bright towers can be found.

Along with this project, her book SEEING DIFFERENTLY: MIAMI COLOR THEORY (Tra Publishing), and her video series for The Bass focus on minimal photography and include engaging lessons on art and perception.

Her previous work has appeared in numerous national publications, including The New York Times, USA Today, Miami Herald, Elle, Esquire, Vogue, In Style, Food & Wine, GQ, Architecture, Interiors, Condé Nast Traveler, Ocean Drive, How, New York Magazine, Upper and Lower Case, Communication Arts Photography Annual, and the cover of Palm Beach Illustrated. Gould was recipient of the Design Center of the Americas’ Stars of Design Award. She graduated from Duke University with degrees in art and art history and received a master’s degree from the Rhode Island School of Design.
