You could try to pin down an artist as diverse, creative and unpredictable as Carl-Johan Paulin, but no matter how hard you try to make sense of his art, you will still meet only frustration.

This is because you simply can't define an artist whose work, by all intents and appearances, is far too varied and chaotically creative to be defined. From spooky jam sessions to suburban coupes to blatantly stand-offish homemakers, Carl-Johan Paulin's photos are perfectly content to boldly mix and mash different subject matter and genres together with irreverent joy and enthusiasm. This, however, is undoubtedly a good thing.

Unlike some artists who are more or less one-trick ponies, Carl-John Paulin is a creative explorer of endlessly new and inventive creations. You could look through a hundred of his images and still have no clue what the next one might hold, and that is a very rare quality indeed.
