Throughout his career, John Kacere devoted his attention almost solely to idealized and highly sexualized depictions of the midsections of the female body, clothed in revealing lingerie. Originally an Abstract Expressionist, Kacere adopted a photorealist style from the 1960s onwards, although he rejected the term as a description of his work. His larger-than-life images of the female form—usually lying on their sides in a horizontal picture plane—have drawn criticism from feminists, prompting Kacere to reply: “Woman is the source of all life; the source of regeneration. My work praises that aspect of womanhood.”
