David Hoffos's installation works conjure effects harking back to early forms of cinema and magic lantern shows. Secret doorways, hidden hallways and miniature scenes peopled by ethereal figures draw the viewer into the artist's subconscious dream world.

This project has been made possible for Veracity with the support of the Region of Waterloo Arts Fund, the Kitchener-Waterloo Community Foundation and Christie Digital.
Since 1992 David Hoffos has had over 30 solo exhibitions including Catastrophe (1998) organized and circulated by the Illingworth Kerr Gallery, Calgary and Another City (1999- 2002) organized and circulated by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge. In 2003 Hoffos (with Trépanier Baer) launched the first phase of Scenes from the House Dream, a five-year series of linked installations. Scenes from the House Dream House debuted as a completed work at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery in Lethbridge in the fall of 2008 in an exhibition organized by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and began a national tour at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa in November 2009. David Hoffos's participation in Veracity has been made possible with the additional support of the Region of Waterloo Arts Fund and the Kitchener Waterloo Community Fund. Japanese Garden was made possible in part with the additional support of Christie Digital and The Tannery.
