Sculptors mold various materials into 3-di­men­sion­al objects meant to be viewed from mul­ti­ple dif­fer­ent angles.

Some sculptors focus on site-specific in­stal­la­tions, creating works that are in­trin­si­cal­ly con­nect­ed to the places where they are ex­hib­ited. Such works would be dif­fi­cult to re­lo­cate to other sites, for artistic rea­sons but some­times also for very prac­ti­cal rea­sons.

Technically, paintings are also 3-dimensional ob­jects, but the visual interest is mostly 2-di­men­sion­al and the backs of paintings are generally hidden by the walls on which they are placed. Sculptures, on the other hand, are usually ex­hib­ited so that they can be viewed from almost any angle what­so­ever, including from above, and in some cases even from below.

Of course some sculptors are also painters, but generally few painters are also sculptors.
