Some move freely,
some do not.
Gorethy Kaye is from Jiwaka ,
but lives between Kokopo and
Lae. She works as a mechanic for
Manolos Aviation, a medical
evacuation organisation. Gorthey
was inspired to start painting
after she fell in love with the
rugged natural beauty of PNG as
she took part in medical
evacuations across PNG.
The painting has two stories. Firstly the lack of health
services in rural communities. Expectant mothers, cannot
travel to health facilities and local facilities are closed. The
other story is the movement of politicians who can travel
freely about the country in helicopters and private vehicles.
