This research was intended to investigate the differences in material and characteristic between the former traditional sculpture and the Soft Sculpture which has have a tremendous influence over modern art, and then study the expression purpose, expression manner, and material of home & foreign artists' Soft Sculpture works after classifying their works according to the expression characteristics of the Soft Sculpture. In addition, it was to compare and study the correlation between their works and my own ones. First, this thesis grasped the theoretical background and the general characteristics of Soft Sculpture, and analyzed the materials of the Soft Sculpture, resulting in assorting the soft materials into textiles, rubber, soft plastic, and paper. By making use of the property of each material, the artists have been creating their works with free and various expression manners which are quite different from those of the former traditional sculpture. Then I could divide the expression characteristics of the Soft Sculpture into usualness, softness, humanness, and casualness, resulting from the study on the expression characteristics of the Soft Sculpture works through various kinds of books and theses. I classified the Soft Sculpture works of home & foreign artists based on the criterion, and then restudied them relating with my own works. Thanks to this analysis I could come to the conclusion that the works created by the artists are quite diverse according to their surroundings, region, gender and expression purpose even though they had tapped the same material. The advent of the Soft Sculpture in the modern art enabled artists to produce various experimental works; they piled up, suspended, or knotted them utilizing the characteristics of the materials; they flied them in the air or floated them in the water by taking advantage of the light and transformable properties. Furthermore, making use of expression characteristics of the Soft Sculpture, a group of prominent artists brought to our attention human existence and alienation in the mass consumption society generated from the industrial society, and they also suggested a solution to the communication problem. The Soft Sculpture will continue to have a great influence over modern artists and me producing works by its variableness and free expression capability of the materials.
