There are two well-known ways of graphically representing functions 
having complex inputs and complex outputs:  CartesianMap (or PolarMap) 
from Standard AddOn package Graphics`ComplexMap` that comes with 
Mathematica and various functions in David Park's excellent 3rd-party 
addon package Cardano3.

But your function is ostensibly a function taking REAL inputs (and 
complex ouputs), so it's not clear just what sort of graphical 
representation you even expect to be able to produce!
