Artist Yvonne Lee Schulz’s exhibition at the Cain Schulte Gallery shows a different take on “Death by Chocolate” by displaying a provocative series of photos of children handling and eating chocolate pistols. Her “2Sweet2kill” is a pop culture behavioral observation experiment documenting children playing with their edible toys.

The artist is well aware of the range of reactions viewers will have on the pictures. She said,"The true art comes from the opinions of the observers. That is where [it] really starts.” The Berkeley-born, Berlin-based artist is best known for her work featuring James Bond’s Walther PPK pistol in different materials, including porcelain.
