Yun’s intricate abstract paintings, alive with countless tiny circles, might represent consciousness itself. “Each of the circles is a layer of memory,’’ the Korean artist says. “It’s past, present, and future.’’ The equally complex layering of Iceland’s geology and climate drew her there as a photographer in January 2009. “The daylight was three hours a day,’’ Yun says, “but I really needed to feel the feeling. I chose the weather.’’
