The James Ostrer Mattress Series Captures the Slumbering

It's hard not to be a bit perplexed by the James Ostrer Mattress Series. Are these still subjects sleeping, insensate or are they a part of some twisted fixation?

The series is part of the artist's 'Death, Sex and Re-birth' exhibition where he draws out experiences from his own life to create an explicit exploration of addiction, gluttony and sexual compulsion. Featuring faceless naked bed-bound models, the James Ostrer Mattress Series certainly challenges the viewer.
