|This painting was exhibited as part of the "...text me" exhibition at Devonport Regional Gallery, curated by Ellie Ray. The exhibition showcased INFLIGHT Gallery and a selection of some of the artists that have shown there over the past few years. This work by Jamin depicts the Tasmanian Premier Paul Lennon embedded with a quote from parliament by the Premier where he states "Tasmania: a state of conspiracy perhaps [laugh], or perhaps we could even have Tasmania: the mates rates place, I like this one though, i like this one, Tasmaina: no hiding here." A few months later one of the Tasmanian Parliaments senior members (ex Deputy-Premier) is arrested and charged with conspiracy.
