Is art without meaning decoration?

I think that the purpose of art is to portray an idea or feeling. Therefore, art that doesn't have a meaning of purpose could be defined as decoration. People use art to express themselves and feelings they can't explain and that's the greatest different between art and decoration. If there is no story or message behind a piece of art, it should be classified as decoration. The definition of art is: the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.  Art can only be art if some thought is put into it so art without meaning is in fact decoration in my opinion.
