Question: Is the Pixma 9000 suitable for fine art (non-photo) printing

Dear All

I am interested in this Canon 9000 not for photos but for fine art images I create and can download off the web. They would likely require a matte (ie. non-glossy) finish unlike most photos. I am new to this area so is the ink that adds the gloss or sheen or is it the paper used.

I suspect i would be using fine art cotton or rag paper similar to paper used in limited edition, conservation-type prints bought commercially.

I woudl greatly appreciate any insights or advice you can provide.

I am in Canada and this printer is currently being offered at quite a discount from its normal $599 price.
