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.
